Scholarships | Abingdon Senior School

Scholarships are awarded for academic excellence, art, design & technology, drama, music and sport. Awards are offered at the three main entry points aged 11, 13 and to the Sixth Form. Scholarships and the 11+ Academic and All Rounder awards entitle the holder to a nominal fee remission of £300 per annum.

However, as is the case for all pupils, there is an option to apply for further financial assistance through a means-tested bursary which can be worth up to 100% of fees.

At least 20 major scholarships are awarded each year and are open to both external and internal candidates. Pupils can hold more than one scholarship or award.

All music, art, design & technology, drama and sports scholarship candidates must also meet the appropriate academic entry criteria.

The Director of Admissions and the Master of Scholars will be happy to assist with queries.
