Year 7 Scholarships

At BGS we are delighted to offer 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
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.

If you would like to apply for a Creative and Performing Arts or Sport Scholarship, please indicate this when you complete the Senior School application form and the Admissions team will then forward the relevant form(s) to you to complete. Applicants are 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.

The deadline to apply for a Creative and Performing Arts or Sport Scholarships for entry in September 2022 was midday on Thursday 18 November 2021. As shortlisting takes place on the afternoon of the deadline day, it is with regret that we are unable to accept late applications.

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.
