Music Scholarships

Music Scholarships are available at 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12). We welcome applications from both internal and external candidates; an offer of a Scholarship is conditional on gaining entry to one of the Schools in the Loughborough Schools Foundation.

Music Scholarships are available by audition in January to exceptional practical musicians, whether instrumentalists or vocalists. They provide the framework for a comprehensive partnership between the pupil and the Music department. Music Scholarships will be tenable for the duration of a pupil’s time at the Loughborough Schools Foundation, subject to annual review, and comprise individually tailored support with performance practice, music theory and aural skills, unrivalled ensemble experience and full access to the Enhanced Music Programme. Scholars must be enthusiastic and able musicians, who can demonstrate their passion for the subject as well as their technical skill. They will be mentored throughout their time at School to ensure they become the best musicians that they can be. Competition for Scholarships is very fierce and they are strictly limited in number.

Scholarship Programme

We offer a number of honorary Scholarships which have no financial value but confer considerable prestige. Recipients receive one-to-one academic mentoring to ensure they are being suitably stretched, as well as membership to a Scholars’ society with bespoke extension activities. Scholarships are awarded on academic merit and are dependent upon examination performance so there is no need to make separate applications to be considered for these awards.

School Assisted Places

School Assisted Places are awards are given to support families whose child demonstrates academic excellence but requires financial assistance to attend the School. They are different to scholarships because they are means-tested. For more information please click here.
