There is much competition for Scholarship places but they offer only a small amount of financial help - the reward is through recognition of the Scholars' contribution to their area of excellence within the School.
Academic Scholarships are offered at 11+, 13+ and 16+
11+ and 13+ candidates whose performance in the Entrance Examinations is deemed worthy of consideration for an Academic Scholarship will be invited back for interview by the Headmaster and Senior Staff. There is no scholarship application form for 11+ and 13+. 16+ Academic Scholarship candidates do sit Scholarship Examinations.
Music Scholarships are offered at 11+, 13+ and 16+. Full details are available from the Director of Music, James McKelvey.
Art Scholarships are offered at 13+ and 16+, Textiles Scholarships are also offered at 16+.
Sports Scholarships are offered at 13+ and 16+ assessment days are held in November prior to pupils sitting entrance examinations. Talented sportsmen and women are invited to apply to attend the assessment days but all candidates are required to meet the necessary academic standard for entry to the school. The Directors of Sport can give more information.
Foundation Scholarships are available at 11+ and 13+. These awards only operate in respect of day places and preference is given to candidates from Bromsgrove and the surrounding area. Foundation Scholarships are awarded to very able pupils in need of financial assistance. The maximum award is 50% of the day fee, which can be augmented by a means-tested bursary. Candidates wishing to be considered for a Foundation Scholarship should apply in writing to the Assistant Head in charge of Admissions.
Bromsgrove offers a generous provision of means-tested bursaries and it is possible to apply for both a scholarship and bursary at the same time. We recommend that a bursary application form is submitted at the same time as the Registration Form. Bursarial funds are allocated on a first come first served basis and late applicants for a bursary may be disappointed if they would require bursarial help in order to accept a place when offered. Bursary awards are normally made by the end of February. Full details regarding the bursary application procedure are available from the Bursar's office.
