Ratcliffe College offers a wide range of scholarships to recognise academic, sporting, musical, dramatic and artistic talent amongst students for the senior school. Scholarships are available for those entering Year 7 or Year 12.

All candidates sitting the 11+ assessments are automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship. Scholarships are awarded to students ranked 1st and 2nd for aggregate scores across the three assessments papers.

We have the highest expectations of our scholarship students; challenging each of them to fulfil their potential in all of their endeavours. Scholarships are for students that have a particular passion or talent that they wish to pursue throughout and beyond their education. As a scholar, students will receive additional support in their subject field and also a 5-20% fee remission.

Applicants are able to apply for ONE of the following:

• Sport
• Music
• Drama
• Art
• All Rounder*

*If your child is talented in multiple disciplines then we strongly encourage you to apply for our All Rounder Scholarship. This scholarship recognises students that excel in multiple talents and candidates will be assessed in a minimum of three different disciplines.

Scholarships awarded in Year 7 are usually retained until the end of Year 11. Scholarships awarded in Year 12 last for two years. All awards are subject to a satisfactory annual review. In the interest of being fair to all families, the school will not accept applications received after the stated deadline.
