Run right through from age 11 to 18 at Repton; any actual title (i.e. ‘Scholar’ or ‘Exhibitioner’) awarded at Year 7 will be reviewed again upon a pupil’s transfer to Repton at 13+ and will depend upon success in competition at that stage. A Scholarship has a monetary value of up to 20% of the full fee and an Exhibition of up to 10%. A Bursary may be awarded in addition to a Scholarship or Exhibition on a means tested basis. All financial awards are subject to the terms and conditions which will be provided to those who are offered awards.
