Downside School offers a number of Entrance Awards for pupils hoping to join the School at the principal ages of entry of 11+, 13+ and 16+. Further assistance may be available by applying for a means-tested bursary.
The bestowal of any award carries with it privilege and responsibility, as well as financial reward. Every award holder is expected to set an example for other pupils in their approach to academic study and participation in the fuller life of the School. The tenure of any award is intended to be for the duration of a holder’s education at Downside, provided that the holder’s academic progress and general conduct remain satisfactory. Awards are reviewed annually.
You will find a list of awards available alongside the relevant application forms and deadlines listed below. If you have any questions during the application process please feel free to contact us at any stage.
