Scholarships for entry into Year 7 and Year 12.

At QEH we offer scholarships for entry into Year 7 to recognise a child’s talent and potential in academics, music and sport.

 

Year 12 scholarship applications are invited for art, drama, music, product design and sport in addition to academic scholarships which are listed separately in the Year 12 scholarship brochure.

In line with other top independent schools, scholarships at QEH do not carry an automatic fee remission. Means tested financial support continues to be available to families in the form of bursaries. For more information on bursaries and our bursary process, please visit our Bursary page.

 

Scholarship award holders are able to apply for an annual grant once they have started at QEH for them to further invest in their talents and passions.

 

A scholarship is awarded at the sole discretion of the school and pupils who are the subject of the awards are required to work hard, contribute positively to the life of the school and live by the school motto – “whilst we have time, let us do good.” The full terms and conditions of the award will be set out in the school’s terms and conditions at the time that the award is granted.

11+ Academic Scholarships

Awarded based on a boy’s performance in the 11+ entrance examination. Every candidate who sits the entrance examination is automatically entered for an academic scholarship. It is based on exceptional entrance examination results and potential shown in interview.

 

They will be expected to contribute to the academic life of the school throughout their time at QEH.

 

After the entrance testing dates have passed, applicants that have performed at scholarship level will be contacted by the admissions team.

Sixth Form Scholarships

  • Art
  • Arts and Social Sciences
  • Drama
  • Languages (Ancient and Modern)
  • Literature
  • Maths
  • Music
  • Science (including Computer Science)
