Scholarships and Bursaries


Scholarships are offered for entry at 13+ and 16+ and recognise a pupil’s excellence in a particular discipline. Bede’s offers scholarships in Academics, Art, Dance, Drama, DT, Music, Performing Arts (Music and Drama) and Sport.

Our scholarships are given with a commitment from us to develop and extend each scholar’s talents, by providing expert tuition and coaching within a supportive culture that challenges each child to expect more of themselves.


If, in order to attend Bede’s, your child will need additional funding beyond the scholarship award, we will ask you to fill out a Statement of Financial Circumstances, which will need to be completed in advance of scholarship.
