The school offers a small number of internal and external academic scholarships for children currently in Year 2, and awards for Music, Art, Sport or All–Round excellence, as well as academic attainment for children currently in Year 4 and Year 6.

Scholarships recognise the achievements of the very, very talented (top 5%) and it is hoped that children who are successful at these ages might also be capable of obtaining a scholarship at the senior school of their choice at 13+, so it is a demanding process.

If you need more information, Year 2 parents should speak to Mrs Swadling (Head of Nursery and Pre-Prep); Year 4 and Year 6 parents should contact Mr Serjeant (Deputy Head/Director of Studies) for academic information, the Heads of Department for Music, Art or Sport, or approach me directly.

Please do speak to the relevant staff before applying, as we have previously had children sitting the scholarship exams/assessments who in reality had little chance of success!

The closing date for applications is Friday 22 January.
