Scholarships and Bursaries


Our School motto is ‘Ad Alta’ – ‘To the Heights’, and we believe our Scholarship Programme reflects our ambition for our most able and talented students. At Seaford we offer ‘Ad Alta’ scholarships in Music, Drama, Dance, Sport, Art, and DT as well as in the core academic subjects – English, Maths, and Science. These scholarships are applied for at 11+, 13+, and 16+ for all external and internal applicants (DT is not available at 11+).

All Scholarships are offered up to 10% fee remission for students (at our Headmaster’s discretion).

All candidates will be interviewed by our Headmaster, John Green, for 13+ and 16+.  Our Head of Prep School Alastair Brown will interview for 11+.

Where potential recipients of Scholarships are in need of further discounted fees, they must make an application through a means tested bursary application. It should be noted that the College, through its Outreach Programme, is actively seeking to offer significant financial assistance to outstanding candidates from the maintained sector who would not otherwise be able to attend; this applies particularly to Sports Scholarships.

There is a limited amount of bursarial funding available, which is awarded at the discretion of the Governors following the recommendation of the Headmaster.
