Sherfield School scholarships

Every year Sherfield School offers Academic, Creative, Performing and Sporting Scholarships offering talented children the opportunity to contribute to, flourish and benefit from the ethos and life at the school.  As a condition of their award, all scholars are expected to show continued commitment to their academic studies, act in a broad ambassadorial role for the school and maintain an excellent standard of behaviour.

Academic awards

All scholarship candidates will take part in an interview with a senior staff member, complete a scholarship essay and take papers in English and mathematics. All candidates must complete registration, a taster day during term time (ideally taken before the scholarship day where possible) and the school standard entry tests as part of their application.

Creative and sporting awards

Candidates are invited to present a portfolio of their creative or sporting endeavours. This may include a CV of sporting achievement and references from teachers and coaches.

Candidates are also invited to present a singing, musical, dance, dramatic or sporting performance for assessment. Certificates evidencing examinations or grades already gained may be presented to support an application.

How to apply

The next scholarship exam dates will be held on Thursday 8 March 2019 for entry in September 2019. 

Sixth Form Scholarships

There are many benefits to joining Sherfield School in the Sixth Form, even if you have taken your GCSE's elsewhere. Sixth Form scholarships can be applied for on the basis of points scored at GCSE. Loyalty discounts for pupils who have already attended Sherfield School can be applied for in addition to the Sixth Form Scholarship. Please contact Admissions to find out more at
