Academic Scholarship Application - Sixth Form

Sixth Form Academic Scholarship Application for entry September 2025

All students who wish to be considered for a Sixth Form Academic Scholarship must submit this form by Thursday 31 October 2024 at 12pm. Scholarship applications will only be considered if the applicant has also registered to join the School, or is currently a student at the School.

If you have not already registered (external candidates only), registration forms may be completed via the following link:

The Scholarship examinations will be held on Friday 15 November 2024.

As a guide in deciding whether or not to apply, it is likely that successful applicants will be predicted to achieve a minimum of six grade 8’s at GCSE including, where appropriate, those subjects they intend to study at A level.


Following receipt of this application form, the Examinations Office will contact applicants to confirm examination details.

The Scholarship examination is a 1½ hour paper and will consist of two sections: Section A – ‘critical thinking and problem solving’ questions, and Section B – an essay chosen from a range of topics. Candidates do not need to know specific subject content for this exam, and there is no need to revise beforehand. The paper will challenge candidates to ‘think outside the box’ or to look at an issue from a different viewpoint.

Please note that if an external applicant is not successful this does not affect the selection process in deciding to make a conditional offer for entry to the Sixth Form.
