Bloxham School Scholarships
At Bloxham School we like to acknowledge and, where possible, reward talent in particular fields.
The scholarships offered at Bloxham School are academic, art, design and technology (DT), drama, music, organ and sport, and are available at 11+, 13+ and 16+ entry levels (n.b. sport scholarships are not available at 11+ and organ scholarships are only available at 16+). Successful applicants can benefit from a fee remission of up to 20% of the day or boarding fee. Have a look at our Scholarships and Exhibitions brochure, which offers specific information and advice regarding subject expectations.
Bloxham School awards scholarships on the basis of a student's potential to achieve, rather than relying solely on what they have been taught previously. Students already studying at Bloxham are invited to apply for scholarships, as well as those looking to join the school. If you would like your child to apply, please fill in our scholarship application form here, or alternatively, if you would like further information, please contact the Registrar, Fay Hand, who will be happy to advise.
Scholarships at 11+
Academic scholarships at 11+ are awarded based on applicants’ performances in the entrance exams, which take place in the November before they are looking to start. If applying for an art, DT, drama or music scholarship, prospective students will sit particular assessments and meet with the relevant Head of Department. Sport scholarships are not offered at 11+.
Scholarships at 13+
Those applying for an academic scholarship at 13+ will be invited to sit a series of papers to demonstrate their ability across the curriculum. Scholarships are also available to students in art, drama, DT, music and sport. As with the 11+ entry, these awards will be based on interviews and particular assessments.
Scholarships at 16+
At 16+, students wishing to be considered for an academic scholarship will sit a General Paper plus papers in two other subjects, preferably those that the candidate wishes to study at A Level. At this level, scholarships are also available in art, DT, drama, music, the organ and sport.
Parents whose children have successfully gained a scholarship in any discipline are still able to apply for bursarial support if they are eligible. More information on bursarial support is available here.
We would love to show you around the school on either a personal visit or on an Open Day.
Please email our Registrar, Lucy Wheeler, to arrange a visit, or for any other enquiries regarding admissions and entry requirements.
