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 encourage their development through the range of programmes in place to support our most ambitious pupils in different academic and co-curricular areas.


The number of scholarships awarded in any one year will depend upon the number and quality of applicants. Scholarships at Denstone are fiercely contested; we therefore expect the highest level of academic, sporting, and creative achievement. Potential pupils are invited to visit us, either at an Open Morning or for a personal tour. Once registration is complete, we ask for a reference from a candidate’s current school as well as any other pertinent references. Assessment for Scholarship usually takes place in November before entry the following September.

The Scholarship will not carry any financial concession as financial support is only available to those students who may not be able to access a Denstone College education otherwise. However, the award of a Scholarship carries other non-financial benefits.

Scholarships are available at 13+ (Third Form) and 16+ (Sixth Form), although other entry points may be considered in exceptional circumstances.
