Year 7 Scholarships

At BGS we are delighted to be able to offer financial scholarships in recognition of a child's exceptional abilities. There are a variety of awards available at different points of entry, and these are open to both students at BGS and candidates who are applying to join the School.

Academic Scholarships
Academic Scholarships are available for entry into Year 7. These scholarships are awarded based on academic merit. All applicants are automatically considered for these and those who achieve highly in the January entrance exams are invited in for a scholarship interview.

Creative and Performing Arts and Sport Scholarships
In addition to the Academic Scholarships, we offer Creative and Performing Arts Scholarships (Art, Dance, Drama and Music) and Sport Scholarships in Year 7 to entrants showing exceptional ability in these areas.

Headmaster's Scholarships
Any Year 7 candidate who is shortlisted for the Academic Scholarship as well as the Creative and Performing Arts and/or the Sport Scholarship will be considered for the Headmaster's Scholarship.

Application forms and further details of the scholarship criteria for 2018 entry are available from the Admissions Office.

If you would like your child to be considered for one of these awards for entry in September 2018 you should complete the relevant scholarship application form and return it to the Admissions Office by 12.00 noon on Thursday 23 November 2017 with the exam application form and £25 registration fee.

As shortlisting takes place on the afternoon of the deadline day, it is with regret that we are unable to accept applications after this date.

Applicants will be shortlisted on the basis of their application forms. Successful candidates will be invited into School for an audition/interview and to meet with relevant teaching staff. These meetings will take place in December for Sport and Art, and early in January for Music, Dance and Drama.

Students who have done very well in their entrance exam but are not awarded scholarships may still be invited to join the School’s Scholars’ Programme, designed to further support your child’s talent. There is no financial award made for being an Honorary Scholar, its value is in the educational opportunities and activities provided. 

How to apply

At whatever stage of their education they join us, your child will be welcomed into the BGS family.
