Cranleigh offers a range of scholarships at both 13+ and 16+. 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.
Scholarships at both 13+ and 16+ attract a fee remission and may be supplemented by means tested top-up bursaries where necessary and appropriate. The top Academic and top All Rounder candidate at 13+ entry will each be awarded a remission of one-third of the total fees. No more than two separate Scholarships may be applied for simultaneously (in addition to an Academic Scholarship).
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.
All applications must be endorsed by the candidate’s current prep school Head, who will be able to provide the requisite scholarship forms.
