Highly prized, scholarships are awarded to children in recognition of proven talent and leadership from entry at 11+ upwards.
Scholarships exist to recognise distinctive academic ability or special talent in Art or Music. Scholars are expected to provide the school with intellectual and cultural leadership, inspiring its community.
Scholarships are merit awards and involve the reduction in fees by a percentage (see below). Tenure of any award depends upon continued high standards and progression during a child’s time at Beeston.
Beeston is committed to enabling as wide a body of pupils as possible to access its outstanding schooling. While the scholarship discounts are modest, families can apply for a limited number of means-tested bursaries to support entry to Beeston and supplement scholarship awards.
‘On the day I was a bit nervous, but the teachers were really kind. I had to do some tests with the other children and then we got to eat biscuits. Now I’m here, we get to do so many more subjects than we did at my last school. We do so much more sport at Beeston too, it’s great!’
