Scholarships are principally awarded to recognise academic potential but are also available to students who show exceptional talent as all-rounders or in a specific area.

A small number of scholarships may carry a reduction of up to 50% of the school fees in recognition of outstanding merit.

The scholarship will be retained throughout the student’s time in the School subject to satisfactory academic progress and good behaviour.

Academic Scholarships

All students who sit the Entrance Examinations will be considered for an academic scholarship. A separate scholarship application is not required.

Non-Academic Scholarships

Candidates wanting to be considered for Art, Design Technology & Engineering, Drama, Music and/or Sport scholarships, must complete a Whitgift Scholarship form for their specific area, and upload it when completing the online application form. A maximum of three non-academic scholarships can be applied for. 

Scholarship applications must be submitted along with the main application form by the relevant closing date to be considered.
