Scholarships

Scholars are the heart of everything we do and stand for at Queen’s College. They are important to us as they work hard and promote the qualities that make Queen’s an individual school with family values. Working alongside other talented pupils is part of the challenge and creates a vibrant experience for our scholars.

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
  • wish to be thoughtful, confident, reliant young people wanting to take places as leaders of society in the future
  • have a strong moral and spiritual fibre

We encourage our scholars to do the very best they can at all times. We want them to become individuals who will match or exceed our expectations. We support them and develop their potential and, in return, we expect a great deal from them. Our aspiration is that they will contribute to the Queen’s community and be an inspiration to those around them.

If you think you would take up the challenge of being a scholar at Queen’s then please apply. 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 to 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.

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 mean-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 scholarships are worth up to 25% of fees and minor scholarships 10%, irrespective of family means.
