Cranbrook School Scholarships for 2021 Entry
Cranbrook School will be offering nine Academic Scholarships, as agreed and funded by the School’s Trustees.
These are available for internal students progressing from Year 8 to 9 in September 2021 and also for those external students applying for entry into Year 9 in September 2021. The awards 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 or Spanish, Geography or History and Latin.
Scholarship students will receive a small financial reward. They will participate in our ‘High Achievers’ Gifted and Talented Programme and will have the 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 GSCE and beyond.
Cranbrook School will be offering two Music Scholarships, as agreed and funded by the School’s Trustees.
2 x Music Scholarships
The Music Scholarships cover the cost of a year’s lessons in the appropriate instrument/voice. Candidates will be expected to have achieved at least the standard of a Grade V.
Successful candidates are required to make a significant contribution to the school’s extra-curricular music programme throughout their time at Cranbrook School.
Scholarship Awards are conditional on passing the Entrance Examination and on being offered and accepting a place at Cranbrook School. The School’s decision is final. No appeal is available.
Owing to Covid-19 a decision has been taken to defer the 2021 Scholarship Exams until the Summer Term (exact date to be confirmed). Registered candidates will be advised of arrangements nearer the time.
Please contact the Registrar if you require any further information about the scheme.
