At Bedstone we are proud of the achievements of each and every one of our young people. They are dynamic, enthusiastic and caring individuals who have a genuine affection for the College and its fully inclusive ethos. We are a non-selective school and we cherish our tradition of educating children from across the whole social spectrum. To underscore this commitment we reviewed our scholarship awards in 2012 and launched a new scholarship program for Bedstone College.

We now offer scholarships in a greater number of specialisms and there has been an increase in the award amount. Awards specialism’s now include Academic, Sport, Music, Art, Design Technology and ‘All Rounder’. The amount of the award varies but could be worth up to a maximum of 25% of published school fees.

In addition to these awards we introduced a small number of ‘Four Counties Scholarships’. These are focused on the same areas of specialism as other scholarships but, for children who currently attend a maintained school and live within one of the four counties of Shropshire, Powys, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the amount of the award could be worth up to a maximum of 50% of published school fees. In 2015 the Governors agreed to open up scholarships for entry into Year 10 in order to widen access for those who are embarking on their all-important GCSE years. 

Scholarships are available for entry into Year 7, 9, 10 and 12. They are not available for entry into the junior school.

Our scholarships are designed to attract talented young people who might not otherwise consider Bedstone as a realistic choice for their education but who would certainly benefit from what we have to offer.
