Scholarships & Bursaries

Targeted for those who excel in the classroom, stage, music, arts & sport

Scholarships & Bursaries


Each year, we are proud to award a limited number of scholarships to pupils who are capable of extremely high levels of achievement and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school.

Awards vary depending on an applicant’s performance on the scholarship days and taking account of any portfolios and references submitted to support and application.

Simply complete the below application form and return this to the Registrar at the following address: At BCS we recognise the potential in all our students, which is why all candidates are assessed for an Academic Scholarship throughout the admissions process.

Scholarships at BCS recognise excellence and talent in a chosen area. We hope that these awards will attract students who have a strong desire and enthusiasm for learning and are prepared to build on their skills and reach the highest standards of excellence. Whether in the classroom, on the stage, in the music department, in the art studios or on the sports field, BCS is prepared to develop your child’s skills and help them reach their full potential.

All candidates are welcome to apply for a means-tested Assisted Place award. Parents who are likely to require financial assistance should contact the Registrar to request an application form.
