Academic Scholarships

Entry at 11+

Potential Academic Scholars are identified through the 11+ Entrance Examination and all candidates are therefore automatically considered. Candidates performing exceptionally well in the Entrance Examination are invited for interview with the Headmaster in the week following the examination. No separate application form is therefore required for the Academic Scholarship.

Candidates must be under the age of 12 on 1 September in the year of entry.


Robert Hammond Scholarship(s)

A Robert Hammond Scholarship is awarded for academic excellence and is usually restricted to boys resident for the previous two years in Hampton, Hampton Hill or Hampton Wick.

Edmund Pigeon Scholarship(s)

Edmund Pigeon Scholarships are also awarded for academic excellence.

Entry at 13+

Nathaniel Lacey Scholarship(s) and John Jones Scholarship(s)

These are awarded through the Common Scholarship examination based on the Common Entrance syllabus. The assessments are held in the May before the September of entry. Details are made available to Heads of Preparatory Schools, who should be consulted.

Hampton School will not offer a candidate a scholarship if he has already accepted a scholarship offered by another school.


Applications for 13+ Academic Scholarships must be made by the candidate’s parent(s)/ guardian(s), to the Head of Admissions at Hampton School.
