Year 7 Scholarships
At BGS we are delighted to offer financial scholarships in recognition of a child's exceptional abilities. There are a variety of awards available and these are open to both students currently in BGS Juniors and candidates who are applying to join the School.
Academic Scholarships are available for entry into Year 7. These scholarships are awarded based on academic merit. All applicants who sit the entrance exams in January are automatically considered for these, with those who achieve highly invited in for a scholarship interview, usually with the Headmaster and our Director of Scholars.
Creative and Performing Arts and Sport Scholarships
In addition to 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. Further details of the criteria for these awards can be found in our Scholarship Booklet, available from the Admissions Office.
The deadline for to apply for a Creative and Performing Arts or Sport Scholarships for entry in September 2021 is midday on Thursday 3 December 2020. As shortlisting takes place on the afternoon of the deadline day, it is with regret that we are unable to accept late applications.
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.
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.
BGS Scholars' Programme
Children who demonstrate exceptional attainment and attitude to learning but who are not awarded an Academic, Creative Arts or Sports Scholarship on entry may still be invited to join the Scholars’ Programme at any point in their school career. This is an honorary award rather than a financial one; the value lies in the educational opportunities and activities we provide.
