Queen’s College Scholarships recognise exceptional aptitude and talent in a chosen area. The purpose of these awards is to attract students who:
- Strive for excellence in their thinking and creativity
- Are thoughtful, confident, reliable young people keen to be the future leaders of society
- Have a strong moral and spiritual fibre
We encourage and support our scholars to do the very best they can at all times and to become individuals who will match or exceed our expectations. Our aspiration is that they will contribute to the Queen’s community and be an inspiration to those around them.
We welcome applicants with a proven excellence and clear potential in the area of your specialism. We are keen to encourage you to apply if you are a top musician who also loves playing sport; an academic that is also appreciative of the arts or an excellent sportsman or woman who could lead a debate. Queen’s students contribute to the richness of the community and our scholars are there to be trail blazers to lead the way and set the standards.
Please ensure that your Head Teacher is aware of your application for a Queen’s College Scholarship – we will contact them for a reference as part of the admissions procedure.
Scholarships are available in the following areas – Academic, Art, Music, Performing Arts, Sport and Outdoor Education.
The Admissions team will be pleased to arrange an individual visit for your family and a taster day for the candidate prior to the scholarship assessments.
All candidates are welcome to apply for a means-tested assisted place in addition to the value of the scholarship award. Parents of candidates who are likely to require financial assistance should contact Admissions to request a financial application form, which should be completed and submitted at the same time as the scholarship application.
As a general guideline, major dual award scholarships are worth up to 20% of fees and single award scholarships up to 15%, irrespective of family means.
