Scholarships 16+


Academic Scholars at Charterhouse set a positive example to the academic life of the School through their enthusiasm, intellectual curiosity and drive. Sir Robert Birley Academic Scholarships and Exhibitions are awarded annually to candidates joining the Sixth Form following the Sixth Form entrance examinations and interview in the November prior to entry.

The Fletcher Scholarship is offered to candidates from state schools in the local area and the Charterhouse in Southwark offers a biennial Scholarship to a candidate from Southwark. Both of these Scholarships will provide a boarding place at Charterhouse, supported by a means-tested bursary of up to 100% of the School fee. The Charterhouse in Southwark Scholarship is next available for 2020 entry.

In addition, pupils joining the School at the beginning of the Sixth Form are eligible for Honorary Foundation Scholarships at the end of their first year.

Art and / or Design Technology

Scholars will be part of a vibrant and inclusive environment where pupils are encouraged to share ideas and develop their skills.  

Art and/or Design Technology Scholarship assessments are held in November and candidates will be invited to bring a portfolio of work with them.


Music Scholars are recognised for their special talent and potential and enjoy a busy and challenging programme, intended to help them reach their potential during their time at Charterhouse. All Music Scholars and Exhibitioners can receive free music lessons in their chosen instrument/s. Music Scholarships and Music Exhibitions are offered after the auditions, which are held in November prior to entry. In addition, the John Pilling Organ Scholarship is awarded each year. This scholarship carries a 30% fee remission.


Sport Scholars are invited to join Charterhouse’s Sports Performance Programme, which aims to challenge and support our Scholars through an excellent 1:1 mentoring scheme, first class coaching and strengthening and conditioning training. Sport Scholarships are awarded to candidates who demonstrate excellence, commitment and potential in their chosen sport/s. Applications are welcome from across all sports, but emphasis is placed on our core sports which are football, hockey, lacrosse, cricket, tennis and athletics. Our expectation is that candidates will be of a County standard or above in their chosen sport. The assessment will be in the November prior to entry and will include a combination of references, interview and the opportunity to demonstrate their sporting skills.
