The School places a high value on musical talent and seeks to encourage outstanding musicians through the award of a number of prestigious music scholarships to students who, for the duration of their scholarship, would be expected to study elective music, participate in School musical groups and performances and take instrumental or vocal tuition either at the School or alternatively as approved by the Head of Music if the School is unable to provide the necessary expertise.

Year 7 & 11: The CGS Foundation Boarding Scholarship

Candidates must perform sufficiently well in the Academic or Music Scholarship assessments to be considered for a Scholarship before they can receive a Boarding Scholarship.
Whether or not they win a scholarship, new applicants to the School for Years 7 and 11 whose academic scholarship examination results place them in the top 25% of all external scholarship applicants for their year group will be given first priority offers of places at the School (subject to satisfying the normal entry criteria and application procedures outlined in the School’s Admissions Policy).
