Scholarships

& Bursaries

A number of Scholarships exist for the most able students.  In all cases the candidate must complete the Application Process first before applying for a scholarship.

Boarding Applicants

Sixth Form Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are considered on individual merit and after following the Application Process for a sixth form boarding place candidates are required to submit their GCSE/IGCSE (or equivalent) results to the Principal’s office. Academic Scholarships of between 5 – 10% fee reduction will be awarded to those who achieve 10 A*s/grade 9s (or equivalent). Results should be submitted by the December of the student’s 6.1 year at the College. Scholarships will be awarded in December and will cover the whole of the 6.1 and 6.2 years.

NB Scholarship funds are limited and will be allocated to top students at the Principal’s discretion.

Sixth form boarding applicants can also consider applying for an Anthony Morris Scholarship which is a substantial award to enable a young person to apply to Concord whose family might otherwise be able to afford the fees. The application process involves means testing of the family resources and income to ensure that the scholarships are awarded to those most in need. Click here to find out how to apply.

Continuation Scholarships are awarded by the Principal to the top students progressing from the College’s Form 5 to the Sixth Form. The award applies to the 6.1 and 6.2 academic years.
