Scholarships are awarded in the Spring term of Year 6 to exceptional internal or external candidates. They are named the ‘Hordle House’ scholarships in recognition of the Prep school which merged with Walhampton in 1997.
Pupils can apply for a scholarship in the following areas: Academic, Sport, Music, Art, Drama or a combination of any of these disciplines. At this initial stage, dialogue between the school and parents is recommended to help determine whether an application is a sensible way forward.
Assessments and interviews are conducted in the first half of the Spring term in Year 6. If a scholarship is awarded it will start in the Summer term of Year 6 and run through Years 7 and 8.
Scholars will be entitled to a remission on school fees (as agreed by the school) and will benefit from a bespoke training and mentoring programme managed by Heads of Department. This programme will develop every scholar’s skills, knowledge, application and passion for that discipline to a very high level.
To apply, all prospective candidates must complete and return a provisional application form by the final day of the Autumn term. If the school approves of the application it will progress to the next stage of the process consisting of interviews and assessments.
