Scholarships

We offer a number of different Gryphon scholarships and students can only hold one, although they may apply for up to two. The award of a scholarship may, like a university offer, be made conditional on the achievement of certain outcomes.

  • Academic Scholarships
  • Contribution to School Life Scholarships
  • Music Scholarships
  • Languages Scholarships
  • Sport Scholarships

Academic Scholarships

These scholarships, which offer a free bus place or free laptop, reflect the academic ethos of The Gryphon School. Offers for this scholarship are likely to be conditional on the achievement of specified GCSE results. There are up to 10 scholarships on offer.

Contribution to School Life Scholarships

A distinctive feature of The Gryphon is that we are at the heart of our local community. We have a strong student leadership group and are always keen to recruit the next generation of leaders. Students on this programme will get a £500 grant towards going on a community engagement event such as our expedition to Rwanda. There are up to 5 of these scholarships on offer.

Music Scholarships

This programme will offer free musical tuition (30mins per week) for 32 weeks of the school year. All instrumental specialisms including voice are encouraged to apply. Students will be required to choose Music A level as one of their choices. There are up to 3 scholarships on offer.

Languages Scholarships

This programme will offer a £500 travel grant for an immersive experience in another country. Students will be required to study at least one of French, German or Spanish at A level. Applicants will be assessed via an interview in their chosen non-native language (other than English) and their predicted grades in languages. There are up to 3 scholarships on offer.

Sport Scholarships

This programme will offer a £500 grant towards sporting expenses such as travel or equipment. Applicants will be assessed via an interview and records of outstanding performances in competition. There are up to 3 scholarships on offer.
