Scholarships are awarded to the best applicants in their fields. Wycliffe Scholars benefit not only from a proportionate discount off the fees but also from the kudos of being recognised and celebrated for their ability, and from various programmes to support their time at Wycliffe. A successful Scholar will be a leader in their chosen field of expertise and a good role model during their time at Wycliffe.

We also encourage and welcome scholarship applications from external and international pupils. Special arrangements are made if the pupil is unable to attend the assessments.
Current Wycliffe pupils who hold previous scholarship awards can apply for further scholarships in their chosen strengths. Scholarships are held for the duration of a pupil’s time in the Senior School, provided their conduct is satisfactory and their level of work and commitment is in line with the expectations of a Scholar.
