Scholarships and Exhibitions (minor scholarships) are awarded in recognition of outstanding ability in a number of areas: academic, art, drama, design and technology, music and sport. We value our scholars highly and support them through the Highly Able Pupils programme as well as though diverse and vibrant teaching.

Student Scholarships, Bursaries & Awards

The number of scholarships awarded in any one year will depend upon the number and quality of applicants. Potential students are invited to visit us, at an Open Morning or for a personal tour, and we hope they will then register.  Once registration is complete, we ask for a reference from a candidate’s current school. 

Assessment for Sixth Form Scholarship usually takes place in November before entry the following September, and dates are found on the website and in the Admissions Booklet you will receive upon enquiry to Denstone.

Scholarships and Exhibitions at Denstone are fiercely contested, and carry respective fee reductions of up to 20% and 10%. In all cases, awards can be augmented through bursaries to 100%, depending on need.  Again, further details of bursaries are available from Admissions and the Finance Bursar. As with many top independent schools, scholarships are available into the First, Third and Sixth Form. In this section highlights the different scholarships currently on offer at Denstone.

The Admissions team will be happy to talk through the options and provide you with any information you may require.
