(for Current Y8 Boys as they Join the Upper School in September 2019) Application Deadline: Saturday 1st December 2018
A range of scholarships are available to current Bedford Prep School boys as they move into Y9 in the Upper School. Scholarships are awarded to boys who excel academically, or show outstanding talent in Art, Drama, Music, Sports (Rugby, Hockey, Rowing and Cricket) or Golf. Boys who meet the criteria for two or more scholarships may be considered for an all-round award. The scholarship booklet which contains further information on each award can be viewed by clicking on this link – Scholarship Booklet. Scholarship application forms can be collected from Prep School Reception or are available to download from the Admissions section of the school website. Scholarship applications should be returned to the Admissions Office, together with any supplementary information requested (please refer to the application form). Boys applying for a sports scholarship need only provide references/testimonials from coaches who train them outside of school. Likewise, music references are only needed from instrumental teachers who are external to Bedford School. Financial support is also available to boys entering Y9 on a means-tested basis through our Bursary Award Scheme. If you would like to receive further information about the scheme, please contact the Admissions Office at email@example.com or by telephone on 01234 362216. Bursary applications should be returned directly to the Harpur Trust. Please note that means-tested bursaries are academically competitive awards and current Y8 boys applying for a new bursary as they join the Upper School will be required to sit the same entrance assessments as external applicants for Y9. Current bursary holders do not need to re-apply as their awards are expected to continue until the end of Y13, subject to them continuing to meet financial eligibility.
