"You get the best out of every child, whatever their strengths.”
Year 7 Parent feedback

At Sedbergh, we recognise distinctive potential and abilities through our 11+ Scholarships. They are the highest awards available, granted at the Headmaster’s discretion, to children entering Year 7, and are designed to nurture talent and ability in the fields of academia, music, drama, sport, art and design, technology and engineering.

Scholarships pupils become a member of the School's respected Scholars’ Programme and may receive a nominal financial concession towards their tuition fees, which continues throughout their time at Sedbergh Prep and Senior School.

Individual scholarship assessments, for Year 7 entry in September 2022, are scheduled to take place in the week commencing 11th October 2021.

If you would like to make a 2022 Scholarship application, please complete and return both a School Registration and Scholarship Application Form to the Admissions Team as soon as possible. Both forms can be found by clicking the buttons below.

Our Scholarship assessment days are designed as an information gathering process and, as such, it is hoped that they will create as little anxiety as possible for the children.

Please be aware that we may face last minute changes to any planned Scholarship assessment days, linked to the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation and guidelines. It would be useful to have any supporting evidence, including references from teachers / coaches and videos / online portfolios of work, available to share with the the School, should the need arise.

Scholarships, bursaries and concessions

Sedbergh Prep School welcomes discussions with families who might, under ordinary circumstances, not consider Sedbergh for their child, for financial reasons. We are committed to widening access by enabling children, who would not otherwise be able, to join the School, and to allow children to remain in the event of an unforeseen change in a family’s financial situation.

Having already completed a Scholarship application, you are invited to contact Mr Tony Roberts, Bursar (Compliance), on +44 (0) 7967 326458 or at tr@sedberghschool.org for an initial discussion regarding individual circumstances. Other financial concessions and means-tested bursaries may be available and combined with scholarships into one level of support, depending on each family's circumstances.
