    Seaford offers ‘Ad Alta’ (to the heights) scholarships in Music, Drama, Dance, Sport, Art, and DT as well as in the core academic subjects – English, Maths, and Science. These scholarships are available at 11+, 13+, and 16+ to all external and internal applicants (DT is not available at 11+). All scholarship awards are worth 10% of fees and where necessary these awards may be supplemented with means tested bursarial support. The College notes that, through its Outreach Programme, it is actively seeking to offer significant financial assistance to outstanding candidates from the maintained sector who would not otherwise be able to attend, with a particular focus on sport.

    For more information about the fee-support options available, as well as a link to their Scholarships Booklet and the contact details of the Admissions Secretary, please see the School website:
