    Summer Fields offers specific discipline scholarship awards in academics and music. Maclaren Scholarships are provided by the Maclaren Foundation and are available to boys with potential whose parents could not otherwise afford the fees.

    The foundation offers scholarships worth up to 100 per cent of day or boarding fees to pupils starting in Years 6 or 7. Applicants sit papers in reasoning, maths and English, and awards are subject to a full financial review.

    Music scholarships are awarded based on merit and cover the costs of music tuition for up to two instruments. For more information and the Registrar’s contact details, please see the school’s website:
