Bickley Park School offers a small number of scholarships a year for excellence in Academic Subjects, Performing or Visual Arts and Sports.
A scholarship may be withdrawn in accordance with the terms upon which such award is made or in accordance with the School's Terms and Conditions.
Purpose of Scholarships
Scholarships are designed to reward excellence and to celebrate exceptional talent. In recognition of this achievement, the scholar is offered a reduction in the fees throughout his time at Bickley Park School. Parents are asked to indicate on the Registration Form whether they wish to apply for a scholarship. Details of the arrangements will be sent to all who express an interest.
We encourage parents of scholars who anticipate that they will experience difficulty in meeting the balance of the tuition fees to apply (at the same as registration of their child) for one of the School’s means-tested bursaries.
Candidates who apply for academic scholarships are selected from the most outstanding performers in the entrance examinations.
Scholarships are held for the duration of a pupil’s time at the School, provided his/her conduct is satisfactory.
All candidates will be interviewed in addition to sitting the usual entry papers.
Drama/Music scholarships are awarded to outstanding musicians who play any instrument or sing with exceptional ability or to a Drama candidate who shows an exceptional level of acting ability. Candidates must obtain a specialist reference from their current head of music/drama in addition to a reference from their current Head. They will be required to perform 2 pieces on their instrument(s) or two perform two drama pieces, together with aural and practical tests. There will also be interviews with the Head of Music/Drama, or a member of the music/drama department. They will be expected to demonstrate enthusiasm for and commitment to performing arts and will be expected to contribute to the Arts Quadrant of the School throughout their time at the School.
Drama/Music scholarships will only be awarded to pupils who have passed the School’s entrance examination.
