At Sutton High School, we offer Scholarships and bursaries at 11+ and at Sixth Form entry. Please do get in touch if you have any questions.
Academic and Performance Scholarships are awarded on merit, irrespective of financial means.
Academic Scholarships are awarded based on performance in the 11+ entrance examination or in the Sixth Form scholarship examination and may cover up to 50% of fees for outstanding candidates.
Performance Scholarships – for Art, Music and Sport – are assessed separately at 11+ and 16+ and are typically set at the 10% level. Awards of up to 30% of fees may be awarded for outstanding candidates. At Sixth Form, the opportunity for a Drama Scholarship is also available.
Girls with Academic and Performance Scholarships benefit from being selected for and taking part in activities appropriate for their stage, abilities and interests, as well as contributing in a proactive way throughout their time in school. Art and Music Scholars are normally expected to study their subjects at GCSE. A Scholarship is a responsibility as well as an achievement and is subject to continued performance and commitment.
Assessment for Performance Scholarships is carried out in school. Candidates are invited to interview and are asked to perform practical tasks on the day. These assessments are carried out by subject specialists and are designed for candidates to demonstrate their ability, interest and potential.
Bursaries are means-tested and worth up to 100% of fees. A number of bursaries are available at 11+ and 16+ entry. Their award is based on academic merit and the income and financial resources of the candidate’s family. Bursary applications are assessed by the GDST, but the final award of bursaries and scholarships is at the discretion of the Headmistress. Each bursary award is reviewed annually by the GDST, as income and financial resources may change.
