Scholarships & Bursaries


11+ Scholarships for entry into Year 7

We are delighted to welcome new pupils into Year 7 at the start of their senior education. We offer a number of scholarships to girls and boys at the age of 11 for entry into Year 7. Prospective parents are advised to register their interest for 11+ places and scholarships as early as possible as both are limited.

All children are invited to attend a taster morning in the January of Year 6 in the year of entry and are considered for places and scholarships based on their entrance assessment results. Scholarships are awarded to academically able pupils who show the potential to gain an academic award to Lancing College at the age of 13. Awards may also be offered to children with exceptional potential in sport, music and the creative and performing arts.

The award of a scholarship does not in itself represent a reduction in fees. Parents of those children who are awarded scholarships are invited to apply for a means-tested bursary and will be required to complete a Statement of Financial Circumstances Form which will be taken into consideration. Depending upon circumstances, a bursary may be offered of up to 50 per cent remission of fees.

The deadline for scholarship applications is in early January of the year of entry with a taster morning and assessment day taking place later in January. Parents will advised of the outcome by mid-February and the final date for accepting a scholarship for Year 7 entry will be in early March.

Details of how to apply for scholarship entry for September 2022 will be available early in the autumn term 2021.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school office for more information about any aspect of our 11+ scholarship scheme.
