Scholarships & Bursaries

We offer an academic and a sport scholarship, for gifted children in Year 5 and 6, whom without financial assistance would be unable to attend Wellesley , and benefit from the outstanding all round education that is on offer.  Applications for both of these awards should be accompanied by a written recommendation from the candidate’s present Headteacher.  For both scholarships we offer up to 50% of the termly fee (subject to means testing) throughout the child’s time at the school.  Candidates may sit for, and be granted, more than one award.  However, the accumulated total of award(s) is a maximum of 50% of term fees (subject to means testing).
