We are proud of our long standing tradition of offering Scholarships in recognition and encouragement of pupils who show real talent and potential for excellence.

Culford Sports Scholars receive an Individual Sports Programme to support their aspirations by developing their athletic, sporting, and academic potential. In exceptional circumstances, a Sports Scholarship may carry a 10% remission of tuition fees.


These awards are available to current or new pupils at 11+, 13+ and 16+, who show a high level of ability across Culford’s sports, or sometimes an exceptional ability in one. Potential, attitude and determination are as important as accomplishment.

Scholarship Selection

Candidates will be invited for an assessment day which will involve:

  • Testing in speed, change of direction and power. Technical and tactical skills in their chosen sports.

  • Scenario based group discussions about sport and academics.

New pupils entering Culford Senior School may be assessed for this award throughout the academic year, subject to funding and availability.

How To Apply

Candidates are required to complete the online sports scholarship application form detailing: honours, awards and achievements; current county, regional or national teams; targets and intended goals plus any other supporting information.
