Sherfield School scholarships

Every year Sherfield School offers Academic, Creative, Performing and Sporting Scholarships at each entry level offering talented children the opportunity to contribute to, flourish and benefit from the ethos and life at the school. Successful candidates will be awarded a merit based scholarship award of a 15% reduction in fees made based on their score. 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.

The next scholarship exam dates are in October 2018 for years 7 and 8.
