Scholarships & Bursaries

Our Scholarships process for Year 7 entry takes place in early February each year and is for academic and multidisciplinary scholarships (which recognise academic potential as well as specialist talents in the areas of art, drama, design technology, music and sport). The process has closed for entry in September 2020.

Our Scholarships Programme rewards pupils who have a talent and an on-going passion for their subject and who would thrive on the opportunities available at Bilton Grange.

If you are interested and want to find out more, please contact our Admissions Office on or on 01788 818246.

Scholarship assessments usually take place over a day and lunch is provided and we can also organise tours of the school for parents if required; please let us know in advance.

Subject to the completion of a means testing form and subsequent assessment, the Academic Scholarship may be supplemented by a Bursary; bursary funding is only available to new pupils. More information on financial assistance is available below.

Bursary Assistance

The bursary process is fair and transparent and only in exceptional circumstances will children in lower years than those being considered for Scholarship be considered. Current Bilton Grange families are not eligible to apply for bursaries; however, the Bilton Grange scholarship programme is open to external and internal candidates.

For an application form and to find our when bursary applications will be next assessed please either email the Admissions Office or phone on 01788 818246.

Once applications have been submitted, we will review all applications and then call families to arrange an interview with the Bursary Panel, which consists of the Headmaster and a School Governor. In addition, we invite the children of families applying for a Bursary to attend an assessment day.
