Scholarships

Our scholarship programme is designed to celebrate talent and promote achievement at every level of the School.

Due to restrictions this year all assessments will take place online

Each year, we offer a number of scholarship places to exceptionally talented individuals. Successful candidates are awarded a discount on fees – usually between 10 and 20%. However, the main purpose of a Strathallan Scholarship is to nurture talent and promote achievement.

Scholars have access to a range of opportunities, like extra support to develop skills in their area of focus. In return, they are expected to contribute to and enhance our academic, musical, sporting and arts programmes, supporting and encouraging their peers to do the same.

Scholarships are awarded in open competition to individuals who demonstrate a very high level of achievement and potential in the following categories:

Third Form Scholarships

  • Academic
  • Sport
  • Art
  • Music
  • Piping
  • Performing Arts
  • All Rounder

The Harry Riley Award

The Harry Riley Award rewards pupils who display strength and talent in Academics and two further non academic disciplines. Harry Riley believed in an holistic all-round education and this award continues this ethos at Strathallan to this day.

The Headmasters Award

For students displaying strength and talent in three non academic disciplines. Holders of this award are selected by the Headmaster following the Scholarship process and reward those pupils who are often participating in non core activities.

Prep School Awards are for those students looking to move into Form 1 (internally and externally). Any award gained will be for the duration of the two years remaining in the Prep school.

All awards will need to be reassessed moving into 3rd form as part of the 3rd form scholarship process.

Academic Scholars are expected to achieve top grades in all their exams and gain entry to the most competitive universities.

Successful scholarship candidates in sport, music and performing arts will normally have achieved at least representative honours and be performing at a standard beyond that expected of a normal school team or group.

In addition, total commitment, an exemplary attitude and high levels of achievement will be expected throughout their school career.
