At Brighton Grammar we welcome applications for scholarships from talented boys who believe they can make a positive contribution to the BGS community.
Brighton Grammar School awards a limited number of Academic and General Excellence Scholarships to students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and success in several fields of endeavour related to school life. The number of Scholarships awarded each year is dependent upon the quality of the applicants and the availability of places.
Brighton Grammar School's Academic Scholarship examinations are conducted in the year prior to entry.
Scholarships are also offered in the specialist area of Music and Choral Scholarships for the St. Andrews Church Choir.
Scholarships covering partial fees will be offered. Tenures vary, but generally holders are expected to complete their secondary education at Brighton Grammar, to maintain a high standard of academic achievement, and to contribute positively and enthusiastically to school life. Each Scholarship holder's progress in the School and contribution to school life is reviewed annually.
A Scholarship may be withdrawn if the Headmaster is not satisfied with the diligence or conduct of the holder. Failure to pay fees may also lead to withdrawal.
Scholarships do not cover the cost of books, stationery or uniforms. Nor do they cover consolidated charges and discretionary charges such as overseas trips.
No boy may hold more than one Scholarship.
