Scholarships

Somerset College offers partial scholarships each year for talented Grade 7 students for entry into the Senior School in Grade 8. These scholarships are awarded on academic excellence only. All scholarships are for a student’s full Senior School career (Grade 8 to Matric), provided conduct and academic performance are satisfactory.

Please note that ALL prospective Grade 8 students are required to write the Placement Test. We do require ALL prospective students to be on our waiting list in order to write these assessments. Application to the school must be made to the Admissions Department in the year proceeding admission. Based on the Placement Test results and information received in the application form, the top candidates will be invited to write the Scholarship Exams.

 

The Scholarship Exam for entry into Grade 8 are by invitation only and will be written at the College. Two papers will be written; Mathematics and English. Scholarship offers will be made based on the results of these two papers. For more information, please contact Mrs Patricia McNaught Davis at admissions@somcol.co.za
