Cranleigh Abu Dhabi Scholarships Now Open for Applications

Cranleigh Abu Dhabi invites talented students entering Year 7 and above in September 2019 to apply for Academic, Sports, Visual Arts or Performing Arts scholarships. The scholarship programme is designed to broaden access to the school’s holistic and enriching educational model, as well as to attract and support talented students who show passion for and potential in their chosen field. We are particularly keen to award scholarships for exceptional candidates wishing to join our Sixth Form.

Selection criteria vary depending on the award, but strong evidence of achievement and potential is important. Candidates are expected to be performing at a high level already and to be able to demonstrate an independence of thought, a real love for their area of excellence and a desire to grow and develop.

Scholarship programmes are an important part of the independent school model, carrying prestige for each scholar and adding weight to university applications. For the student body, scholars act as role models and peer group leaders, demonstrating how potential can be realised and what can be achieved through commitment and determination. For the school as a whole, scholars add an energy and vibrancy that further add to community spirit, diversity and excellence.

By having a scholarship programme that carries fee remission, we are able to ensure more children have the opportunity to benefit from the calibre and breadth of education offered here at Cranleigh Abu Dhabi. All scholarships attract a fee reduction and are merit-based.

For interested external applicants, please complete a regular admissions application using the online system and then email to register your interest in applying for a scholarship. Full admissions information must be submitted before progressing with Scholarship applications. Current Cranleigh pupils should email for more information about the internal application process.
