Sidcot Scholarships

Sidcot Scholarships are not just about celebrating and nurturing excellence - they’re about sharing it too. Our Scholarship students are given the opportunity to engage in tailored enrichment activities and extra support in their awarded subject. With the support of staff who are experts in their field, students are encouraged to challenge themselves and to achieve their very best.

Scholarship students are ambassadors of Sidcot who share their enthusiasm and encourage fellow students to take an active interest in their subject area.

Sidcot Scholarships for September 2024

We are inviting new students to apply for a Sidcot Scholarship, which will entitle them to a 10% reduction in tuition fees

Scholarship Application Deadlines

To apply for one of our independent school Scholarships, you’ll need to meet the below deadlines:

  • Sixth Form: Scholarship applications for students entering Year 12 need to be received by 31 October 2023
  • Senior School: The deadline for applications for students entering Years 7, 9 and 10 is 8 January 2024*

* Academic tests and interviews will take place on Saturday 13 January, with special talent assessments taking place during the week commencing Monday 15 January. The Sports Talent Assessment day is scheduled for Wednesday 31 January 2024.

Scholarships For Current Students

Current Sidcot students in Year 6 and Year 11 who do not already hold a Scholarship may also apply as they are in transition to Senior School and Sixth Form respectively. Please refer to the deadlines above.

Students at Sidcot who have already gained a Scholarship will retain their award and title throughout their time at the School, subject to an annual review of their performance and providing they continue to show the attributes of a Scholar. 

Those moving from Year 11 to Sixth Form may have an interview to ensure their continued commitment and suitability as a Scholar, but will not need to take any formal assessment papers.

Gifted & Talented Programme

Students who have received a Sidcot Scholarship and are in Years 7-11 will be invited to join our Lead Learner Programme alongside students who have been identified as extremely competent in their chosen subject areas. Academic Scholars and All-Rounder Scholars will be encouraged to stretch and challenge themselves in all subject areas and will be invited to get involved with enrichment activities, both inside and outside of the classroom in their preferred subjects.

Scholars in the Sixth Form will be invited onto our Aspire Programme and will become Ambassadors of the School. They will be invited to take part in an exciting programme of events and activities related to Oxbridge and top Russell Group Universities and Careers.
