Applying for Scholarships at 11+ entry

Haileybury offers Scholarships to those candidates who demonstrate excellence, talent, outstanding achievement and promise. At 11+ entry (Year 7), the College offers Academic, Music, Sport and All Rounder Scholarships.

Scholarships available at 11+ entry

For pupils joining Haileybury in Lower School (Year 7), Academic, Music, Sport and All Rounder Scholarships are available to external candidates.

All candidates sit Haileybury's entrance examinations in English, Mathematics and Reasoning and will also have a short general interview with a senior member of staff.

Academic Scholarships

Haileybury does not require 11+ candidates to submit a separate application for an Academic Scholarship. An Academic Scholarship will be awarded to candidates who are outstanding in their performance, both in our entrance examinations and interview.

In this way, we are able to recognise and reward the very best candidates.

Music Scholarships

Candidates will normally offer two instruments, one of which may be voice. A minimum standard of Grade III or IV in the main instrument is expected. Candidates will have an audition and an interview with the Director of Music.

The College is primarily interested in identifying potential at this level. Candidates may also submit and perform their own compositions.

Sport Scholarships

Attitude, athletic ability and raw talent are our key factors in selecting a sports scholar at this age. Experience in our sports listed below is not a prerequisite, but might be a potential benefit.

We award scholarships to girls in hockey, netball, lacrosse and tennis; and to boys in rugby, cricket, hockey, football and tennis.

The assessment day would typically include: fitness training, training session in a sport(s) of your choice and interview. We will also ask for your child to prepare a short presentation on their personal sporting history.

All Rounder Scholarships

Candidates are expected to offer evidence of outstanding achievement in two or three disciplines: sport; music; drama; art and design technology. Candidates will undergo a practical assessment of their particular strengths with the appropriate Head of Department.

Please note that an All Rounder Scholarship application may not be combined with any other Scholarship application.
