SPORT SCHOLARSHIPS

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 Sport Scholarships and to hear from a Scholar….

Scholarships are awarded to pupils who have the potential to make an outstanding contribution to Sport at Wells. Candidates should already be playing sport both inside and outside of school, whether via the club or county route. Our top Sport Scholarships will go to candidates of County standard or above.

  • A group activity
  • A fundamental movement assessment

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 scholarships worth up to 50% of day fees 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

Scholars will habitually enter the programme at the aspirational level and aspire to progress through the levels throughout their time on the programme. Our Elite Scholars are currently performing at national level. All Sport Scholars will receive a formal review of their progress and performance in November of Year 8 and November of Year 11.
