The St Helen’s scholarship programme supports, encourages and develops excellence, whether it be in academic, creative or sporting fields of endeavour.
Each year the School makes available a number of scholarships and exhibitions to recognise and reward exceptional candidates in academic study, music, sport and art. Pupils who hold an award are expected to work hard and to contribute positively to the life of the School. Many, of course, bring their talents to bear on the wider world as well. Scholarships are only awarded to Senior School pupils.
Academic entry scholarships are awarded annually at 11+ and 16+ entry and are worth up to a maximum of 50% of the tuition fees. Scholarship awards are made on the basis of academic ability and are not related to family financial circumstances. There is no additional Scholarship examination for external pupils at 11+.
In addition to academic scholarships, Music Scholarships and Exhibitions are available at 11+ and 16+ for applicants of exceptional musical ability. Sports Scholarships are available at 11+ and 16+, and Sixth Form Art Scholarships are also awarded. A scholarship award lasts for the whole period of a pupil’s education provided they maintain appropriate academic standards and behaviour.
Further details on Scholarships are available from the Admissions Department.
