The School provides financial support to selected boys in the form of scholarships, bursaries and exhibitions. Scholarships are available to boys entering the School in Year 7 and in Year 11 and others are available to boys within the School.
Entrance scholarships are awarded each year to a number of boys entering Years 7 and 11 and are allocated after the completion of a competitive examination and an interview with the Headmaster and Director of Studies. In general, such scholarships are awarded to boys considered to have high academic potential, who will benefit substantially by attending the School, and who will in turn make a significant contribution to the academic life of the School. Factors other than purely academic potential may be taken into account.
Three means-related scholarships are available (one of which is for Boarding) for entry into Year 7. They are awarded to boys who apply considerable effort to their studies and who will contribute significantly to the life of the School, both inside and outside the classroom.
The Shore Foundation RAI Grant Music Scholarship provides an opportunity for a boy entering Year 7 with outstanding musical talent to attend Shore and exercise leadership in this area. Financial incentives are also offered to a number of boys undertaking instrumental tuition in Year 7.
Should a scholarship for entry to Year 7 or Year 11 be offered, acceptance will entail payment of the Registration and Enrolment Fee. These payments confirm acceptance of a scholarship. Boys who have already enrolled or who currently attend Shore Preparatory School will have paid this sum previously.
A number of exhibitions and bursaries are available to boys within the school who are progressing into Year 11 and Year 12. Such awards are made to selected applicants after consideration of their potential contributions to the School and an assessment of their likely performance in a variety of areas of School life in their final years. Occasionally, boys may be invited to share an award.
All scholarship, bursary and exhibition holders are expected to display academic progress in keeping with their abilities and to take a full and constructive part in the life of the School.
All awards are reviewed annually and are continued if the boy is considered to be making outstanding progress. Most of the awards are named after members of the School community who have made outstanding contributions to the School in a variety of ways over a long period of time.
Detailed information on the application process can be found on the Academic and Music scholarship page. Please contact the Scholarships Office for additional information.
