Scholarships & Bursaries

At all ages Entrance Scholarships are available every year for academic excellence and exceptionally promising talent in music and sport. At 11+ art scholarships are also available. The school is keen to attract talented pupils and to offer places to those with particular strengths, whether academic or extra-curricular, who might not otherwise be able to afford a Maidwell Hall education.

Academic Scholarships

It is our wish to prepare talented pupils for senior school entry at 13+ such that those coming to Maidwell Hall with the financial assistance provided via our scholarship scheme might also be able to benefit from similar schemes at senior schools.

Sports Scholarships

Sport is a very important part of the curriculum at Maidwell with children having sports coaching every afternoon. We offer a non means tested sports scholarship to a minimum value of 30%. The Scholarships are designed to encourage applications from boys and girls with particular individual sporting talent or all–round sporting potential.

Service Personnel

Forces Bursaries of up to 30% are available for children of parents who serve in the armed forces subject to means testing. 


Candidates for music scholarships will need to demonstrate exceptional talent for music, they need to demonstrate particular ability on at least one musical instrument and to be able to support this with evidence of successful grade exams.


Maidwell Hall have limited funds that allow us to offer means-tested bursaries to children who may otherwise not be able to afford to attend the school.
