Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a scholarshipscholarship is the recognition of academic, sporting, or artistic excellence, following assessment by Claremont School. Scholars receive a reduction on school fees, opportunities to develop further in the areas that a scholarship is awarded, and, most importantly, tailored coaching and support in the respective areas of the award offered.
  • What is the difference between a scholarship and a bursary? Both give financial assistance but are completely separate in their assessment. Scholarship awards are given to pupils who have demonstrated excellence and ability in their chosen scholarship area. A bursary can be given in recognition of financial need and can be applied for on behalf of any pupil who is registered with the School, regardless of ability. A bursary can also supplement a scholarship award amount. Bursaries are means-tested, so parents are asked to complete a financial circumstances form which is then assessed by the Principal. These are available on request from the Head of Admissions, Lily Lam, at lily.lam@claremontschool.co.uk.
  • How are scholarship candidates assessed? The decisions on the distribution of scholarships are made by the Scholarship Committee, made up of the Principal of Claremont, the Headmasters of Claremont Prep and Senior School, the Director of Sixth Form and Assistant Head Academics with advice taken from the leaders of the various areas where scholarships are offered. If there are not suitable candidates the school reserves the right not to award any given scholarship.
  • What are the fees for applying for a scholarship? In order to apply for a Year 9 or Year 12 scholarship a non-refundable registration fee of £110.00 is required. If you wish to accept any offer that is made a further £550.00 refundable deposit will be required to secure a place for September 2022/23.
