Scholarships are considered for entry throughout the academic year for pupils from Year 4 upwards, although they are primarily awarded to those entering the Senior School.
Boundary Oak Scholars will follow a dedicated Scholarship Programme, with close mentoring to ensure they challenge themselves and develop their abilities and strengths to their full potential throughout their school career.
Scholarships are awarded in name only. Should you wish for a financial discount to be associated with your scholarship, if your child is successful, you will need to complete a means-tested bursary form. Depending on your financial need these discounts are usually in the range of 5-15%.
Scholarships are available in the following areas: academic, music, performing and creative arts, sports and all-rounder. Pupils who consistently perform at a high level in one of these areas are invited to apply in writing to Mr Joe Davis, Head of Co-Curricular, email@example.com
