Scholarships for entry in Year 7 and Year 12

An award is granted at the sole discretion of the school and the pupil who is the subject of this award is required to work hard, contribute positively to the life of the school, be a credit to the school and set a good example to other pupils.

Scholarship award holders are able to apply for a grant once they have started at QEH for them to further invest in their talents and passions. QEH has made the decision to stop automatic (non-means-tested) fee reductions for scholarships. By doing this, we are able to offer support to a larger number of families who would otherwise not be able to attend QEH.
