Every year Wells Cathedral School awards a number of scholarships to recognise current talent and potential in a wide variety of fields. In addition to a financial award, the scholars receive enhanced educational opportunities and privileges to help them develop their talents.

The school offers Academic, All Rounder, Art, Drama, Specialist Mathematics, General Music and Sport Scholarships. The scholarships (apart from General Music) are open to pupils looking to join in Years 7, 9, 10 and Lower Sixth. General Music Scholarships are open to pupils going into Years 7 and 9. 

Scholarship awards are based on current merit. Most applicants will be awarded 10% of their day fees. The school does award a finite number of scholarships worth up to 50% of day fees for truly exceptional candidates, which will be awarded solely at the school’s discretion.

The Scholarship Day for Sport and All Rounder is on Monday 24 January 2022 and for Academic, Art, Drama, Specialist Mathematics, General Music is on Tuesday 25 January 2022.

Registration deadline for both days is Friday 7 January 2022.

To help applicants with the scholarship process, the school will be holding an online Q&A on Saturday 27 November at 10.00am. This online event will allow applicants to hear from current scholars and to find out more about the scholarships and the application process.
