Junior scholarships

Scholarships are awarded annually to particularly talented children who will be assessed through tests, exams and observations. They may also be interviewed by a range of staff and references from current schools will be required. Scholarships may be awarded either for a high level of attainment and future potential or for specialist aptitude in a particular area. With the exception of academic scholars, all candidates will also be expected to pass the school's entrance papers or Common Entrance.

Scholarships available:


Bryanston's unique academic system allows academically gifted pupils to develop their intellectual profile by challenging themselves in a number of ways: inside the classroom through the curriculum; with their tutor in the weekly one-to-one tutorial; and also through the academic enrichment and co-curricular programmes.


The Richard Hunter all-rounder scholarships are awarded to candidates who possess the talents and also personal qualities necessary to make a significant and ongoing contribution to the busy extra-curricular life at Bryanston.


Art scholarship candidates should have a creative commitment to art, showing a lively interest in the subject and possessing strong observational drawing and recording skills.

Computer Science

Candidates for the computer science scholarship are able to exhibit a good level of ability in a variety of applications and technologies. They are enthusiastic about pursuing their interests through a wide variety of initiatives and display their potential in programming and app development.

Design & Technology

Pupils with impressive graphical and practical skills, who can demonstrate a real interest in design and convey their ideas clearly, are invited to apply for a D&T scholarship.


A generous number of music scholarships is offered each year for outstanding ability in any orchestral instrument, piano and organ.

Performing Arts

Byanston has always had a proud tradition of excellence in the Performance Arts and we are happy to announce a new scholarship opportunity, available to any pupils who show particular talent and enthusiasm in this area.


Sport scholarship candidates should be able to show talent in the school's major team sports (rugby, hockey, rowing, cross country, cricket, tennis and netball) and they will normally have competed at county level in at least one of these. Talent in other sports will also be valued, but only when combined with the above. Sports Scholars are automatically enrolled on the Performance Sport Programme (PSP) which involves targeted training for junior scholars and bespoke training plans for sixth form pupils. These plans are tailored entirely towards the pupils' respective sports and sessions are additional to regular sporting activities. In addition to sporting talent, scholars will also be assessed for their leadership skills, resilience, enterprise, motivation and temperament. The candidate's present school will also be asked to provide a report which highlights these factors.
