Flywire's payment experience


Every year we award a number of Scholarships to recognise current talent and potential in a wide variety of fields. In addition to a financial award, our Scholars receive enhanced educational opportunities and privileges to help them develop their talents. Watch the video to find out more about our Drama Scholarships and to hear from a Scholar….


For entry at Years 7, 9, 10 and Lower Sixth (NB., Year 10 is only applicable for external candidates)

Scholarships will be awarded to pupils who can make a difference to our Drama Department. Candidates should have dramatic experience both inside and outside of school and demonstrate a true passion for drama.

Financial awards

Scholarship awards are based on current merit. All successful Year 7 applicants and most other successful applicants will be awarded a maximum of 10% of their day fees. However, we do award a finite number of higher scholarships for truly exceptional candidates, which will be awarded solely at our discretion.

We may be able to supplement a scholarship with further financial assistance based on your family’s needs – please see our Bursaries page and our Remissions Policy for details.

Review process

All Drama Scholars will receive a formal review of their progress and performance in November of Year 8 and November of Year 11.
