Academic & Music Scholarships

The following named scholarships are awarded annually at 11+ (entry to Year 7) and are based on a girl's performance in the Entrance Examination.

An academic scholarship, awarded to a girl from the EHS Preparatory School.

An academic scholarship, awarded to an external candidate from the maintained sector.

An academic scholarship. This is open to all candidates.

In addition to the general Entrance Examination for a place in Year 7 (11+), girls have the option to apply for the 11+ Martineau Music Scholarship, which can be up to a value of 50% remission of fees. This is one of four named scholarships that can be awarded to Year 7 girls and was named after one of the founding families of the school who were heavily involved in education.

There is much competition for the Martineau Music Scholarship and we expect girls to have reached a minimum standard of Grade 5 on at least one instrument. Girls will need to attend a music audition conducted by the Music School to qualify. Applicants undertake a listening examination, which will include listening tests, theory questions and a short essay about their music making activities and concerts they have attended. This written paper is followed by practical tests to include a performance of one piece on each instrument or voice they are offering for assessment, sight reading, sight singing and aural tests.

Girls are encouraged to bring their own accompanist but if this is not possible one will be provided. In this case, the necessary music for the school's accompanist must be brought on the day of the main Entrance Examination to allow the school accompanist time to prepare.

In addition, the School has a number of EHS Scholarships that are awarded to candidates who have reached an excellent standard in the Entrance Examination.

All girls who sit the Senior School Entrance Examination are automatically considered for an academic scholarship so there is no need to register for this separately.

The Martineau Music Scholarship must be applied for separately; if you wish for your daughter to be considered for this then please note your interest on the Registration Form at the time of registering.
