Sixth Form Scholarships

Sixth Form scholarships are available for boys and girls of exceptional talent in the Sixth Form at QEH.

The value of the scholarship will vary based on the number and strength of the applications received in each subject area but will be not less than 10% of fees and not usually more than 25% of fees. More than one scholarship may be awarded in any given subject area.  

All candidates for scholarships will be tested by an interview and, in some cases, a practical assessment. Interviews will be conducted by the relevant Head of Department and Senior Staff. Awards will be made on the basis of these assessments and are also likely to be conditional on the candidate achieving specified grades at GCSE level.

Existing QEH pupils will be eligible to apply as long as they are not already in receipt of a scholarship. Pupils currently in receipt of a bursary may apply for a scholarship but the total level of assistance offered (bursary plus scholarship) is unlikely to exceed the value of the existing bursary. Internal candidates will be subject to the same assessment procedure as external candidates.

Scholarships will be offered in the following areas:


Science (including Computer Science)

Languages (Ancient and Modern)





Arts and Social Sciences 

Sport - we are looking for students with all round sporting ability and potential, and it is likely that they will play sport for a local club and may play at County or Avon Schools level. They will be able to contribute to the main team sports of the school, rugby, football, cricket, hockey or netball.

For more details on application criteria please see our Sixth Form prospectus.


To be awarded an academic scholarship, candidates must be predicted to achieve a majority of grade 7/8s in all their GCSE subjects as well as high grades in their specialist area.

Applications for places and scholarships must be received by Friday 22 November 2019.

Interviews for place and scholarships will be on held on Monday 9 December 2019.

Practical assessments will be arranged on an individual basis.
