11+ Scholarship Opportunities Available

Children may join Prestfelde Senior School at any year (subject to availability of places). Our aim is to fully prepare pupils for entry and possible scholarships into future senior schools such as Shrewsbury School, Concord College, Wrekin College, Moreton Hall, and Malvern, along with many others.  

The 11+ scholarship assessment process will consider a pupil’s ability, attitude, and work ethos. The awards are open to current and external pupils alike. Candidates for 11+ Scholarships must be aged over 11 and under 12 on 1st September of the year of entry (UK pupils will currently be in year 6).   

Prestfelde offers the opportunity for pupils in year 6 to apply for a scholarship (worth up to a maximum discount of 20% of the Prestfelde day fees) based on exceptional recent achievement, performance in scholarship test and an interview with the Head. 

Candidates can enter for more than one type of award. Scholarships are open to current Prestfelde pupils and to pupils wishing to join us at year 7 in September 2021. All scholarship candidates will be expected to take the relevant scholarship assessment.  

There are three categories of Senior School scholarship: 

  1. Academic: for outstanding academic achievement
  1. Talent: for exceptional talent in Art, Music, Sport, or Drama. 
  1. All-rounder: for pupils demonstrating significant intellectual potential and evidence of exceptional talent in a particular discipline.

The assessments will take the form of an audition for Music, a practical working assessment for art, a physical assessment for sport and academic tests for an academic scholarship will be held in January 2021 on the following dates (subject to COVID restrictions in place at the time):  

Monday 11th January 2021    Closing date for all 11+ applications

Friday 15th January 2021       11+ Sports Scholarship Assessment

Saturday 16th January 2021 11+ Academic Scholarship Examination & 11+ academic test for external Talent & Sports candidates

Completed entry forms should be returned by the closing date Monday 11th January 2021

Any external candidate wishing to apply for any of the areas of a Talent scholarship must also sit an 11+ academic entrance examination. 

It is important to note that the scholarship examinations are designed to identify potential candidates for 13+ Scholarships for future school admissions and to aid them in further developing their potential.
