COLET COURT ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS AT 11+

Academic Scholarships, worth £60 per annum, are awarded to a few exceptional internal and external candidates at age 11+. The award is valid until the end of the Fifth Year at Colet Court, at which point it is reassessed via the St Paul’s transfer examination.

ST PAUL’S JUNIOR ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS AT 13+

For external candidates entering at 13+, the scholarship examination is held annually in May. This exam is taken instead of Common Entrance. Candidates must have successfully completed the 13+ admission process and have been made a conditional Main List offer. Candidates must also be under 14 on 1 September following the examination. Boys who do not win an award will have their conditional place confirmed on the basis of their Scholarship papers. The Junior Academic Scholarship is retained until the end of a pupil’s career at St Paul’s, subject to good work and conduct. Compulsory papers are set in English, History, Geography, Latin, French, Theology & Philosophy, Mathematics and Science. There is an optional paper in Greek and candidates are encouraged to sit it if they have reached a reasonable standard. About 30 scholarships are awarded each year in total to Coletines and external candidates. All Academic Scholarships are honorary and worth £60.
