    Wellesley House offers means tested scholarship programmes in both academics and sport for gifted children in Years 5 and 6. For both scholarships they offer up to 50% of the termly fee throughout the child’s time at the school.  Candidates may sit for, and be granted, more than one award, however the maximum fee reduction will always be 50%. Both scholarships require a written reference from the pupil’s current Headteacher and applicants will be required to sit papers in Maths and English alongside specific tasks for the type of scholarship, as well as an interview.
