Scholarships & Bursaries

An opportunity to achieve distinction and personal excellence through the scholarships programme.

Blundell’s aims to nurture academic performance through the encouragement of scholarship and scholarly example. There is a wide cross-section of awards aimed at developing balance, breadth, and will to lead from the front by maintaining the highest standards.

The Scholarships and Awards are competed for at 11+, 13+ and 16+. There are also a small number of discretionary Head’s Awards.

See the Current Information Booklet (Pg 8-17) for more information, how to apply, closing dates and FAQs.

Blundell’s is fortunate to be able to continue to fulfil the wishes of Peter Blundell, its founder, by offering Foundation Bursaries to successful scholarship applicants who may need more financial support. These applications will require a notarised Financial Means Form to be submitted prior to the scholarship process.
