Academic scholarships

Back to Scholarships

Overview

Academic scholars are expected to display a positive attitude to their work across all subject areas. Academic scholars are expected to work hard in class, behave well and ensure that homework tasks are completed to a high standard. It is recognised that even scholars may struggle in certain subjects but in such cases, it is imperative that they maintain a positive attitude.

At 11+, candidates sit written and online papers in English and Mathematics. The exams are based on the National Curriculum expectations for Year 6, and therefore these exams are accessible to children from any setting (i.e. state primary schools as well as other independent schools).

At 13+, candidates sit written and online papers in English and Mathematics. The exams are based on the National Curriculum expectations for Year 8 and also take into account the Common Entrance curriculum. Therefore these exams are accessible to children from any setting (i.e. state schools as well as other independent schools).

At 16+, the award of an academic scholarship is based on a student’s top eight GCSE predicted grades and their performance in their GCSE mock exams.
