Scholarship Programme

Co-educational Scholarship Programme for Years 3 and 4

Our Scholarship Programme is open to curious, enthusiastic and talented learners joining Years 3 and 4. At St Edward’s Prep, education goes beyond the limits of the National Curriculum and challenges children to become creative and critical thinkers with the skills to be the authors of their own success.

We believe our relevant, inspiring and exciting education should be available to as many in our community as possible and therefore are looking to award scholarships to children who will make a positive contribution to the school, both in character and achievement.

Who is eligible? 

All children who apply for a scholarship will be welcomed to an Assessment Day. Scholarships are open to girls and boys who will join Year 3 or 4 in September 2024. The expectation is that candidates will remain at St Edward’s Prep until the end of Year 6.  

How much is the scholarship worth? 

Scholarships of between 5% and 25% of fees will be offered. The level of the scholarship offer will be dependent on the number of offers made. Please note, if a current pupil is already in receipt of a discount for any reason, the scholarship award will replace the discount and not be added to the overall fee remission. Additional discount could be given through the form of a bursary, which is means assessed.  

What scholarships are available? 

Scholarships are available for children showing academic, creative and sporting potential. The Headteacher’s Scholarship may be awarded to a child demonstrating potential in a number of areas. 

What are we looking for in a scholarship candidate? 

We are looking for enthusiastic children who display potential. Applicants should be able to demonstrate potential by having some or all of the following characteristics: 

  • above average academic ability; 
  • good levels of self-motivation and enthusiasm for learning; 
  • an outstanding interest or ability in one or more areas of the curriculum.
