Prestfelde School to Recognise Potential

As a way of recognising and nurturing potential, Prestfelde School in Shrewsbury awards scholarships at 11+ for current and external new pupils alike.

The scholarship assessment process will take into account a pupil’s ability, attitude and work ethos. As well as helping pupils to strive for excellence in areas of particular ability, there is the additional benefit of discounted school fees. Awards of between 5% and 20% off the day fees are made to successful applicants.

Scholarships are available for academic ability and also for a range of extra-curricular subjects including Art, Drama, Music and Sport. Assessments take place in January 2019 whilst pupils are in Year 6, and any awards offered take effect from the start of Year 7.

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).

Applications for September 2019 must be made by Friday 04 January 2019. Scholarship assessments will be held on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 January 2019.

The 11+ Scholarship Booklet and Entry Form is available on the school’s web site. For further information, please visit:
