Places are still available for Academic Scholarships for 2019. The deadline for applications is 28th January 2019 and the examinations will be sat from Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th February 2019 at Ampleforth College. Accommodation and travel can be arranged. 

Top scholarship candidates are awarded a 10% remission on school fees. The award of an Academic Scholarship can support a means-tested bursary application, with bursaries for up to 100% of fees available. 

Three quarters of students at Ampleforth go on to gain A* to B in A Level subjects and most of these go on to Russell Group universities, as well as other top universities across the world. Our value added scores, measuring the progress students make with us, are in the top 5% for the UK.

Scholarship papers are set in English, Mathematics, Science (Chemistry, Biology & Physics), History, Geography and Religious Studies. Pupils who are already studying Latin and/or French will be asked to sit papers in these subjects. There is an optional Greek paper set by Ampleforth College. Good work in this paper may help but cannot harm the chances of an award. Although there is no set examination in Art, Design and Technology or ICT, candidates are encouraged to offer portfolios of work done in these areas in support of their award.
