About 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.

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.


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 should exhibit three key qualities: an innate curiosity and inquisitiveness about digital technology and its potential to shape our lives; a strong technical ability in the subject, including logical thinking, problem solving and programming; an enthusiasm  for communicating the power of digital technology to their peers.
