11+ Scholarships

For 11+ entry we offer academic, music and sports scholarships. The value of these scholarships may vary but they are usually in the region of 10 – 20 % of fees. However, a scholarship can be supplemented by bursary.

Academic Scholars

All students sitting the 11+ entrance assessment will be considered for the academic scholarship and those showing outstanding potential in the entrance test will be offered an Academic Scholarship.

We offer an exciting programme that brings together all our scholars, by inspiring each other beyond the confines of year group and subject boundaries.

This year, academic scholars have enjoyed various puzzles and challenges, and a polymath trip to the Tate Modern where they interrogated the link between science and art.

Music Scholarships

Music is an integral part of life at NHEHS and we welcome applications for our Music Scholarships. We would suggest students come along to our Music Open Morning in the Autumn term to get a taste of music life at NHEHS and to meet some of our music scholars.

Students will generally be playing at Grade 5 standard or above on their main instrument, although they do not need to have taken grade exams. Equally, if your daughter plays a more unusual instrument, but has not yet attained Grade 5 standard, please do get in touch with our Admissions team for advice.

Auditions will be held in late January. Please click below for further information.



Sports Scholarships

NHEHS has an exceptional reputation for developing talented students to achieve their potential. We offer a number of sports scholarships in Athletics, Netball, Cross Country, Swimming, Cricket, Tennis, Hockey and Water Polo and students can apply for one sport or for an all-rounder award.

The Sports Scholarships assessment day is held in January.

If you are interested in applying for either a music or sport scholarship please tick the relevant box on the Registration Form.


Sixth Form Scholarships

Scholarship applications are most welcome from students joining the Sixth Form and we offer academic, music, sport, drama, science and art scholarships. These are generally worth 5%-10% of the fees, for the two years of Sixth Form study.

Scholarship application forms will be sent to you on completion of the online Sixth Form registration form, where you should indicate which scholarships you are interested in applying for.

Please note that the application/interview process includes a portfolio of work for Art Scholarships, auditions for Music and Drama Scholarships and a practical session for Sports Scholarships.
