Clifton College offers pupils a unique opportunity to achieve academic distinction and personal excellence. Each year, we offer a number of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries to girls and boys with that spark of potential.

It’s all about the individual

There is no one particular type of pupil that succeeds at Clifton College. The range of opportunities available promotes the discovery of hidden talents, and encourages a higher level of achievement in every subject.

Scholarships and Awards

Clifton College offers pupils a unique opportunity to achieve distinction and personal excellence through the scholarships programme. Each year, we offer a number of scholarships to girls and boys with the potential to excel in their chosen field.

There are scholarships at 11+ for entry into Year 7, 13+ for entry into Year 9 and at 16+ for entry into Year 12. At 13+ and 16+ Clifton College offers Scholarships in Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport (as well as a separate 16+ Organ Scholarship). There are also scholarships at 11+ for entry into Year 7 offered in Academic, Music and Sport. Scholarships are merit based and competed for via examination, audition or other appropriate assessment.

The Scholarships programme runs alongside the means-tested bursary programme. Those receiving a scholarship will be able to apply for a bursary if they need assistance in paying school fees.
