Scholarships & Bursaries

Wetherby Senior is an independent day school for boys, aged 11-18 years, located in Marylebone, in the heart of London.

Means-tested Bursaries

Wetherby Senior offers financial assistance in the form of bursaries which are available through the Gold Standard Charitable Trust. Bursaries are designed to widen access to our School by enabling boys to come who could not otherwise do so, as well as allowing boys to remain at our School, even in the event of a change in family circumstances.

Bursaries are subject to a detailed mean- test. Please be aware that the Trust does not have the resources to support all applications, so only a limited number of boys will receive support in a given year.

Applicants for 11+, 16+ or Occasional Place entry should indicate their intention to request a bursary when they submit their application. Our bursary application process runs alongside the admissions process for applicants at these entry points.

Applicants for 13+ should apply after they have been awarded a place at our School. This application needs to be made by the start of the Spring Term, prior to a boy joining Wetherby Senior in Year 9.

Wetherby Senior Sixth Form Academic Scholarships

Any current Year 11 pupil or prospective Year 12 pupil may apply for a Wetherby Senior Sixth Form Scholarship. These are of monetary value and are expressed as a percentage discount on fees for the whole of your son’s time in our Sixth Form. Being awarded one of our Sixth Form Academic Scholarships is prestigious and scholarship holders will be recognised at Prize Day, in our Summer Term, and expected to continue to contribute to the wider life of our School, as well as excelling in their studies.

Scholarship exams will take place during the second half of Autumn Term, alongside the admissions process for prospective pupils. Please note that these scholarship exams are separate and distinct to the 16+ admissions exams.

Boys will sit two 45-minute papers in subjects they wish to study at A Level. Papers are only available in subjects offered as a GCSE so if, for example, a boy is interested in A Level Politics, then he will be advised to sit a related paper, such as History. The content of each paper will be GCSE-level material.

Our Scholarship Committee will meet and consider the results of the papers, as well as reviewing boys’ existing academic data and their contribution to the wider life of our School.

Other Scholarships

At this point, Wetherby Senior does not offer scholarships outside of our Sixth Form Academic Scholarships. It is planned that other scholarships may be offered in the future and information on this website will be updated accordingly.

The Nsouli Scholars Programme

The Nsouli Scholars Programme is an exciting global initiative that promises to transform lives by enabling 50 extraordinary students at any one time to attend any of Inspired’s prestigious schools on a full scholarship for the duration of their education. The ambition is that the scholarship will provide hundreds of children with an opportunity to receive a truly transformative education.

By opening this path to exceptional individuals, we hope to expand our community, and to empower children of all backgrounds with unrivalled opportunities in academics, sports, the arts and extracurricular activities. In this sense, the Nsouli Scholars Programme is an investment both in education and in shaping the leaders of tomorrow.

This generous endowment honours Nadim Nsouli, who founded Inspired in 2013 as a definitive statement of excellence in private international education. In recognition of Mr Nsouli’s Lebanese heritage and Inspired’s commitment to inclusivity, several scholarships will be awarded to individuals of Lebanese origin.

Inspired schools offer a world-class educational experience that combines academics and engaging extra-curricular activities, producing confident, multi-skilled students who flourish in a competitive and increasingly interconnected world. Along with expert instruction by hand-picked teachers, our students access specialist sports programmes and professional tutelage from leaders in the performing and creative arts. As a result, they leave armed with a robust value system and a love of learning that extends well beyond the classroom.

Inspired is also committed to leveraging new and transformative learning technologies. Inspired AI empowers children to achieve academic excellence by delivering actionable insights that are unique to each student, including strengths and weaknesses. Our partnership with The Royal College of Music and Forte, a revolutionary online platform, enables children to receive personalised music tuition from professionals. Students with musical interests benefit from bespoke private lessons, advancing their practice as creatives and gaining valuable performance experience.

Top Academic Results

The advantages of our holistic approach to education are evidenced by the fact that Inspired students consistently excel in academic performance, surpassing national and global averages. In 2022, the Average Point Score was 35 for those undertaking the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, for which the world average was 31.98, while A* scores comprised 27% of our students’ A Level grades, compared to 14.6% globally. As a consequence, many are able to attend leading universities, with one in three graduates going on to a Russell Group University or Ivy League College.

A Global Experience

The Inspired Group includes top-rated day and boarding schools worldwide, meaning students enjoy access to a diverse international community. Be it through specialised Summer Camps or immersive Global Exchange Programmes, children have the chance to travel broadly and engage meaningfully with different cultures, meet and learn from our esteemed partners, build lifelong networks, and become more independent.
