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.

Please note, 16+ scholarship entries are now closed and the deadline for 13+ scholarship entries is 10 January 2022.


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.
