Principle: Scholarships provide opportunities for talented individuals, predominantly but not exclusively, on the Isle of Wight to attend Ryde School. Their involvement with the School will develop their own skills and also enrich the student body in key areas of the School. 

No scholarship attracts a direct fee discount but being a scholar allows access to up to 90% means-tested bursaries. In addition to full scholarships, exhibitions may be awarded. These awards, however, only have limited bursary support. 

At the scholarship and bursary application stage there is no requirement for a registration fee. 

Scholarship assessments for entry to Years 7, 9 and the Sixth Form in September 2025 will all take place in November 2024.  Scholarships likely to be available are:

  • Academic
  • Sport
  • Performing and Visual Arts
  • Music
  • Sailing

To give you an indication of the types of scholarships we are likely to be offering for the September 2025 intake please see the booklet from this year below. Please use it as a guide only:
