Scholarships

We offer scholarships to pupils for Music and Sport.

Music

Music Scholarships at The Cedars School offer a subsidy towards instrumental or vocal lessons, which are expected to be taken in the school. Additional awards may be made at the discretion of the school. The standard generally expected of candidates will be from Grade III on their principal instrument. Although high marks in Associated Board examinations are often good indications of musicianship, we shall also be looking for a thorough grounding in technique and for musical potential. If Associated Board examinations have been taken we look as favourably on high marks as the attainment of high grades.

Sport

Scholarships may be awarded to boys who show significant ability in Rugby, Football or Cricket. We expect potential candidates to be selected in national, county or representative teams. Selection to sporting academies is also seen as an equivalent although trials are not seen as such.
A strong academic profile is necessary along with sporting commitment to the school. Sports scholars must display the school’s aims and ethos. Fee remission varies according to a candidate’s all-round suitability for the school, as well as sporting prowess.
Potential candidates for sports scholarships need to pass the school’s entrance assessment.
