Scholarships & Bursaries


11+ Scholarships for entry into Year 7

Means-tested bursaries may be available to some pupils in certain circumstances. Our funds for these are strictly limited and parents should discuss this with us at an early stage when considering the school for their child.

The aim of our 11+ means-tested scholarships is to help talented pupils who wish to take full advantage of an independent education and whose parents might otherwise have not been able to afford it. This can offer a pathway for those considering applying for scholarships at Lancing College at 13+ but does not guarantee continuation into a senior school. We would of course use our expertise and knowledge of senior school destinations to advise parents in good time of future options for the next step of their child’s education.

We have a finite amount of funds available to us for scholarships and the fairest way to distribute these is to offer financial support according to need.

The 11+ Scholarships are designed to help talented pupils wishing to take full advantage of an independent education and whose parents require financial support. 

The deadline for applications is Monday 15 January 2018.

The scholarship tests consist of standardised assessments in verbal, quantitative, and non verbal reasoning. 

Exceptional talent in other areas such as Sport and Music will be taken into consideration when scholarships are awarded but a good academic level will also be expected.

The tests will be completed on Thursday 25 January 2018.

Following the assessment day, the most able students will be offered an honorary scholarship and may move on to the next stage which is a means test. We have a finite amount of money to spend on scholarships and the fairest way is to offer financial support according to need.

There will also be a Taster Day on Thursday 18 January 2018 when your child may choose to spend a normal school day with our current Year 6 pupils; this is optional.

Late applications may be considered from time to time in exceptional circumstances but the availability of funds for a scholarship cannot be guaranteed outside of the usual scholarship process.

Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Piper, Lancing Prep Worthing Registrar, for more information about any aspect of our 11+ scholarship scheme.
