Bursaries & Scholarships
Moreton Hall is widely recognised as one of the leading independent boarding and day schools in the UK.
Increasingly selective, it’s overriding aim is to attract highly motivated pupils who will benefit from the wide range of opportunities Moreton Hall can offer.
Normal entry points to the senior school are at 11+ and 13+, and Sixth Form 16+ but occasionally pupils join at other times.
As part of our entrance assessments, there are a number of Scholarships available recognising achievement across a range of areas including Academic, Sporting, Music, Drama and Art. Moreton Hall’s scholarships are designed to attract pupils with significant talents and potential across a broad range of fields. As well as the prestige the Scholarships also offer some financial reward, up to 20% of fees in each category throughout the pupil’s education at the school.
