Marlborough House School believes that excellence should be recognised and awards scholarships to children who show outstanding ability in various areas. Year 7 entry scholarships are a public recognition of the contribution that talented pupils make to school life and will be awarded on the basis of merit.
Applications from current MHS pupils and external candidates will be considered, with all pupils being judged on the same day and by the same criteria. Candidates will be judged on their current level of ability as well as their potential.
Scholarships are available in the following six categories:
Academic, Art, Design and Technology, Drama, Music and Sport
There is also an All-rounder category where pupils can demonstrate aptitude in either two or three of the above categories.
The Assessment Guidelines for Candidates document with further details about the individual scholarships is available to download below.
Those who are successful in gaining a scholarship will be supported individually in their final two years at Marlborough House School in a package that will include some extra tuition and help in preparing for any suitable scholarship attempts for senior schools. In addition, there will be fee discounts ranging from 5% to 20% - any further discounts will only occur through the school’s means tested bursary protocol. It is expected that successful candidates will both continue to focus on the area in which they have won an award and maintain high standards of performance and commitment.
Applications and assessments for Year 6 pupils take place annually in the Autumn Term, for entry into Year 7 the following September. Scholarship applications for a Year 7 place in September 2023, open in September 2022.
