A number of Sport Scholarships are available at 11+ (Year 7 entry).

Scholarships are awarded to exceptionally talented and committed sportswomen demonstrating ability and potential in one or more of the school’s main sports:


Sport Scholarship applicants will need to demonstrate that they are playing (or have the potential to compete) at club, region, county or country level or have a recognised ranking in their sport before applying. Candidates should be an outstanding ‘A’ team player or equivalent at their current school and/or an excellent club level performer.

Candidates must also satisfy the Putney High School entry requirements.

Any girl accepting a scholarship will be expected to participate fully in the sporting life of the school and represent it in their chosen sport throughout their time here.

Our sports scholars are positive role models, worthy sports performers and possess leadership qualities. We also have an Elite Sportswomen Programme to nurture and support able athletes.
