Senior School Academic Scholarships Introduction
All Senior Scholarships for the September 2020 intake are now allocated. Applications for the 2021/2022 academic year will open in the Autumn Term 2020.
Gosfield Scholars must demonstrate an exemplary attitude to all aspects of their school life; their studies, their extra-curricular activities and their interactions with members of the Gosfield Community. Their self-discipline, positive attitude and hard work make them fine ambassadors for the school and helps them to fulfil their potential and achieve their ambitions.
Applying for a Scholarship
You must be registered with us to attend a Scholarship Trial Day. Registration forms and Senior Scholarship Application forms are available from the School Downloads page here. You may also wish for your child to take part in a Guest Pupil Day prior to making your application to better understand the opportunities on offer at Gosfield School. Taking part in a Guest Pupil Day does not guarantee an invitation to attend our Scholarship Trial Day in January 2020. In year groups which are at capacity the offer of a Scholarship does not constitute an offer of a place.
The following dates apply pupils in school Year 6 or above who are seeking admission to Gosfield School (senior) in September 2020. Pupils must be registered with us before attending a Guest Pupil Day.

Guest Pupil Days are available from September 2020 onwards. If you would like to book a Guest Pupil Day please contact our Registrar.
An Honorary Scholarship does not carry any less esteem within the School or the wider community but they do not have a financial value.
We regret that we cannot consider applications for Scholarship Awards for 2020 admission past the dates mentioned above.
Scholarship Awards cannot be deferred.
In Year groups which are fully subscribed, an offer of a Scholarship does not constitute an offer of a place. It may be that an applicant will be placed on the waiting list for that year group and the Scholarship will be applicable once a place has been secured.
All Scholarship Awards are made at the Principal’s discretion, whose decisions are final.
