Scholarships

Cranleigh offers a range of scholarships. These include: Academic; Art; Design; Drama; Music (instrumental and vocal); Sport; and All Rounder awards. To gain an award candidates must demonstrate excellence in their chosen field and show exceptional promise. The number of awards each year will depend on the quality of entry.

Scholarship candidates must be over twelve and under fourteen years of age on the 1st of September in their chosen year of entry to the school. No more than two separate scholarships may be applied for simultaneously (in addition to an academic scholarship). Scholarships attract a fee remission and may be supplemented by means tested top-up bursaries up to 100% where necessary and appropriate. The top Academic and top All Rounder candidate will each be awarded a remission of one-third of the total fees.

All applications must be endorsed by the candidate’s current prep school Head, who will be able to provide the requisite scholarship forms.

Music Scholarships

A range of Music Awards are offered to talented musicians following a successful individual audition. Pupils can enter the school at any age, subject to a place being available, but there are significant musical entry points at 11+ and 13+, when children naturally finish at one school and consider their onward journey. Keen and capable musicians are warmly welcomed at all stages. Please contact music@cranleigh.org if you would like to make a preliminary visit or discuss the possibilities available for a potential music scholarship candidate.

Scholarship auditions take place during the Lent Term.
