Scholarships & Awards

Scholarships & Awards



Academic, Music, Sport and Drama Scholarships are available for pupils entering Foremarke at 11+.  Financially, 11+ awards run through from 11 to 18 in partnership with our sister school, Repton.  The actual title (‘scholar’, ‘exhibitioner’) awarded at 11+ is reviewed when pupils transfer to Repton at 13+ and will depend upon success in competition at that stage. The 11+ Entry and Scholarship Mornings take place in January of each year.

Although the majority of our pupils move on to Repton as their chosen senior school, some of our pupils choose other options and many achieve Scholarships to their chosen destination. These have recently included:-

Rugby, Uppingham, Shrewsbury, Radley, Eton, Harrow, Oundle, Denstone, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Downe House, Wellington, Loughborough Grammar School, Blundell’s, Trent College, Sedbergh, St Mary’s Calne, Lichfield Cathedral School.

The date of the  next 11+ Scholarship Exam is 19th January 2019


There are also 7+ scholarships awarded each year to pupils entering the Prep School at Year 3 level. Candidates will be assessed in numeracy and literacy skills. Although this exam is open to all, it is set at scholarship level and we recommend that only children attaining Level 3 (SATS) in English and Mathematics or a standardised score of 130 on a recognised formal assessment test should be entered. The 7+Scholarship Exams take place on a Saturday morning in early May each year and are open to both internal and external candidates. Any awards made will be based purely on the morning’s performance and are offered for the duration of the pupil’s time at Foremarke.

The date of the next 7+ Scholarship Exam is 11th May 2019

A Scholarship has a monetary value of up to 20% of the full fee and an Exhibition of up to 10%.

All financial awards are subject to the terms and conditions which will be provided to those who are offered awards.


Bursaries may be available to those who, on grounds of hardship, would not otherwise be able to go to an independent school. These may be added to Academic awards. Means tested bursaries are also available to Forces families.
