At Hurst Lodge School, scholarships are regarded as funds awarded to pupils with a particularly high standard of academic, musical, or performance achievement.
Scholarships are granted regardless of any financial need and are open to all children, whether in the School or not, in Year 6 on Scholarship Day.
Scholarships are not necessarily awarded every year. When no one candidate excels, the decision will be made not to award a scholarship. The panel’s decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
The following awards are available: Academic, Music, Art, Performing Arts, and All-rounder
Candidates for an academic award will be required to sit English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning papers.
To qualify for an all-rounder award, candidates should offer two or more areas of school life where they have clear strength or potential, i.e. music, sport, drama, art or academic. Assessments are done by the same staff, in the same way in order to

The level of awards tends to be in the range of 5% to 20% of the tuition fee

The application process
Decisions on scholarships are made by a panel of staff, chaired by the Principal and the level of award offered is at the discretion of the school. Any award given will commence from the September following Scholarship Day.
Scholarship Day at Hurst Lodge School takes place in the middle of November each year.
The Scholarship Panel announce their decisions within 48 hours of Scholarship Day.
Length of award
Scholarships are normally awarded on the basis that they will continue for as long as the pupil remains at Hurst Lodge School. However, in all cases, scholarships are conditional upon the pupil making reasonable academic progress and maintaining good standards of behaviour and may be withdrawn in the event of consistent breach of School rules or serious misconduct. Scholarships will be reviewed by the school on a two yearly basis.
