College Scholarships

At St Edmund’s College, we offer scholarships at three entry points; Year 7 (Elements), Year 9 (Grammar) and Year 12, Sixth Form.  All scholarships offer a reduction in school fees of up to 20% for the duration the student is at the College.  Additional financial support may be awarded in conjunction with a scholarship by applying for a bursary.  For more information please see the bursary page of the website.

Please note that as we move through this difficult period examination and scholarship dates are subject to change.  Once you are registered with us we will keep you constantly up to date.
