Scholarships at Worth are highly prestigious awards available to students demonstrating outstanding talent and ability in the spheres of Academic Study, Art, Drama, Music or Sport.
Scholars are offered exciting programmes and opportunities to develop their skills to the maximum and are also expected to act as role models, promoting their area of excellence and encouraging others to follow their example. All scholarships are won in open competition and are awarded solely on merit. Candidates must be registered with the School prior to entering the scholarship process and applications for bursaries should be made at the same time as applications for scholarships.
For all types of scholarships, awards can range in value and a candidate may also hold one or more awards, so that Academic, Art, Drama, Music or Sport awards may be held concurrently. Only Academic awards are available to pupils entering Worth in Year 7. Pupils are encouraged to apply for further awards in Art, Drama, Music and Sport, or Academic, whilst in Year 8. Additionally, at the Head Master’s discretion, exceptional awards with a fee concession may be made where, during the assessment process, we identify exceptional potential or need. Tenure of any award depends upon continued satisfactory progress. The School reserves the right to vary the number of awards according to the strength of applications. The level of fee concession provided can be augmented by bursary support which is subject to means assessment: More information on bursaries here.
