Year 9 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 and these are open to both students at BGS and candidates who are applying to join the School.
Academic Scholarships are available for entry into Year 9. These scholarships are awarded based on academic merit. All external 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.
Application and assessment procedures for Year 8 students who are currently at BGS are outlined in the Scholarship Booklet, which is sent to all Year 8 parents in the first half of the Autumn term.
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 to individuals showing exceptional ability in these areas.
The deadline for to apply for a Creative and Performing Arts or Sport Scholarship for entry in September 2022 is 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 further 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.
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.
Children who demonstrate exceptional ability and dedication to their studies whilst in the Senior School, but who were not awarded a scholarship may still be invited to join the School’s Scholars’ Programme, designed to further support your child’s talent. Children may be invited to join the Scholars' Programme as an Honorary Scholar at any point throughout their school career. There is no financial award made for being an Honorary Scholar, its value is in the educational opportunities and activities provided.
