16+ Scholarship Guidelines
We have made some changes to the 16+ Scholarship exams
Based on the level of attainment in the entrance exams for external candidates, or internal screening assessments for existing pupils, selected students will be invited to sit the 16+ Academic Scholarship exams.
We are looking for candidates who do not just excel in one area, but instead are able to think independently and critically.
Therefore, rather than sit subject specific papers, candidates will now be asked to complete critical thinking exercises. There might also be some general knowledge questions and there will be a piece of extended writing. The questions have been set by the Headmaster.
Candidates will be invited to an interview based on the results of the Scholarship paper.
There is no further guidance and there is no need for candidates to prepare for these exams.
If your child has been invited to sit the 16+ Scholarship exam and you wish them to take the opportunity to apply, please complete the online form on the link below.
There is a charge of £50 for both internal and external candidates.
If you already hold a Scholarship at Freemen's, you are eligible to apply, but no further financial discount will be awarded.
