 Post subject: Foundation Scholarships
PostPosted: Mon Mar 02, 2009 8:55 pm 
I know of some senior schools that start at 13 which offer foundation or junior scholarships to pupils aged 10 or 11 which funds them at a prep school for 2/3 years. I was wondering if anyone knows of other schools which offer these in any location and preferably with boarding. The list of boarding schools that I have found that offer this are:

Eton
Harrow
Radley
Rugby (day place)

are there any others which are either coed or a boys school - it doesn't have to be a well known school, thanks.

Oundle have a entry at 11 or 13 with scholarships available from 11.

A few more:

Tonbridge (attending prep elsewhere for 2 years)
Kingston Grammar
Wellingborough (but you have to re-compete for your scholarship at 13 and again at 16 :shock: )

Thanks for this, these are helpful, but I am specifically looking at a 13+ school only as my friend wants to keep DS in current prep school.

Most schools that offer foundation stage scholarships will also want to chose the prep school. It may be unlikely therefore that your friend's child can stay at their existing prep unless it is one of the ones chosen by the 13+ school.

It definitely is one of the prep schools that has been recommended by two of the senior schools I've mentioned, but agree that other schools may not be as accommodating.

Sorry Sally-Ann, but I only just want to congratulate Bradley Mitchell.

Valued at £150,000 (or even more), this one must be the king of Foundation Scholarships:

Congratulations Brad! What a tremendous job - well done!
