Scholarships are provided in recognition of outstanding performance and a demonstration of exceptional ability, be that in the field of academia, the performing arts, the creative arts, and sporting achievement. These are conditional upon a pupil maintaining a high standard of performance and a commitment to contribute fully to school life at HGS.

The award of all scholarships will be dependant on candidates achieving an appropriately high standard of performance in the Entrance Examination papers, appropriate references as required, and the candidate’s performance at the scholarship interview with senior members of staff. Scholarships are awarded at the start of Year 7, however may be available at the Headmaster’s discretion at any point throughout the senior school in order to recognise outstanding performance.

Scholarships will be reviewed annually. The School reserves the right to withdraw a Scholarship if a pupil fails to maintain the standard of excellence on which the award was based, fails to make a satisfactory contribution to school life, or for any other significant reason, such as a major disciplinary offence being committed by the pupil.

The Headmaster may choose to award a number of scholarships should the performance of the candidates in the Scholarship Examinations justify such action.

The Headmaster may also award a Scholarship in recognition of outstanding performance in the Scholarship Examinations by a student residing in the locality.
