The discount applies to the basic day or boarding fee.
Our expectation is that scholarships awarded to pupils will be for the whole time they are at Bethany. The School does, however, reserve the right to examine the progress of each scholar on an annual basis and reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship if expectations are not being met.
The progress of scholars is carefully monitored and tracked by individual Heads of Subject. They will liaise with parents as to the progress of their child on the scholarship programmes.
Bethany requires its scholars to make a positive contribution to the life of the School, participating fully in the scholarship area and acting as good ambassadors.
Pupils with a scholarship award in a specific subject will be expected to select the scholarship subject at GCSE and A level as relevant. Bethany may not make an award in a particular area if there are no candidates of sufficient merit.
The assessment procedure varies slightly for Year 7, Year 9 and the Sixth Form and between different scholarship areas. Assessments for Year 7 scholarships take place in November each year for entry in September of the following year; Year 9 assessments take place in January for entry in September, while assessments for Sixth Form entry take place by appointment, with internal scholarship offers being made late in the autumn term or start of the spring term in Year 11.
If you would like your child to be considered for a scholarship, please read the specific information on each subject. Candidates may only apply for scholarship in one area. The exception to this is in Year 7 where pupils who score highly in entrance assessments may be invited to apply for Academic Scholarship and parents may still choose to enter their children in another scholarship area.
To apply for scholarships for entry in Years 7 and 9, please complete the relevant section on the Entrance Test form which is available from the Registrar.
If you would like your son or daughter to be considered for a Sixth Form scholarship please discuss this initially with the Registrar.
Pupils can only be awarded one scholarship. There may be occasions when pupils on bursaries are also awarded scholarships, but the combined total will not exceed 50%.
