A Scholarship or Exhibition is recognition of exceptional ability and promise and is usually accompanied by a financial reward. Scholarships and Exhibitions are awarded on the basis of merit and can be worth up to 10% of the fees (boarding or day). A Scholarship is worth 10% of the fees and an Exhibition is worth 5% of the fees. The number and size of Scholarships and Exhibitions is at the discretion of the Headmaster.
