Scholarships

Cranbrook School will be offering nine scholarships, as agreed and funded by the School’s Trustees.

These will be available for students applying for entry into Year 9 and are designed to recognise and reward high ability and exceptional interest in a particular academic area. There are no scholarships for those applying for Year 7 entry.

Scholarships will be awarded in the following categories:

3 x Entrance Scholarships – Criteria will be based on exceptional performance in the 13+ Entrance Examination in addition to one Scholarship paper (as detailed below).

6 x Academic Scholarships – Criteria will be based on high performance in the 13+ Entrance Examination and exceptional performance in one of the following Scholarship papers: Mathematics, English, Science, French & Spanish, Geography & History or Latin.

For those applying for September 2018 entry, the entry exam date is to be confirmed.  The exam will last approximately 45 minutes for day and boarding applicants.  They will be designed to help students demonstrate their particular interest and wider learning within a subject and will generally take the form of a two-part exam.  Part one will be based on the Key Stage 3 national curriculum for that subject, where this exists.  Part two will be a more open-ended question designed to allow students to demonstrate their wider interest in the subject. 

Scholarship students will receive a small financial reward.  They will participate in our ‘High Achievers’ gifted and talented programme and will have an opportunity to take part in Higher Education related activities for Oxbridge later in their educational career.  Therefore, this scheme is best suited to students who are predicted to perform very highly at GCSE and beyond.

Please contact the Registrar if you require any further information about the scheme.
