At Haileybury, Academic Scholarships recognise and reward the most outstanding candidates. Available to pupils seeking to join the College at 11+, 13+ or 16+, Academic Scholarships are awarded to those who exhibit not only academic rigour but also who reveal a passion and intellectual curiosity.
Haileybury recognises that all pupils have particular strengths and aptitudes which require nurture and support; our Academic Scholars are those with strong intellectual abilities and a particularly impressive work ethic. Academic Scholarships can be offered at 11+,13+ and 16+ entry.
Academic Scholars will be involved in curricular and co-curricular activities at the school which cater for their exceptional ability and work ethic.
In addition to a fee remission of up to 30%, all are offered the opportunity to attend courses and workshops which stretch the most able.
The Deputy Head (Academic) with the support of the Head of Lower School, the Head of Sixth Form, HMs and Tutors oversee the development of Academic Scholars.

The qualities we seek from potential Academic Scholars are many and varied but will typically embrace the Haileybury ethos of inquisitiveness, resourcefulness and generosity of spirit, as defined in more detail by our Haileybury Habits.
We will identify these through our interview, tests and through communication with your child’s current school.
Haileybury's Academic Scholars are expected to be the College's leading ambassadors, challenging themselves and their peers always to be better.
The requirements for the award of Academic Scholarships vary depending on the age of the candidate.
Applications for Scholarships are assessed as part of our admissions process, details of which (and timelines) are given below, along with further information about the Haileybury Habits:
