Performing Arts Scholarship

I am delighted to be announcing that Hylands School is launching its first Performing Arts Scholarship Programme for our 2018 year 7 cohort.

In view of the school’s tradition of excellence in the Performing Arts, the governors will admit up to 15 students under our new scholarship programme. Any student who shows potential within the arts may apply for a place, whether they are a dancer, musician or have a dramatic or artistic aptitude

Please see in the right hand column further information about the performing arts scholarship, including an application form.

Year 7-11

If your child is presently in Years 7-11 and you wish to apply for a place at our school, applications should be made directly to Hylands School using the Application Form found in the document section of this page.


If we are able to offer a place to your child, an admission meeting will be arranged where we can provide you with detailed information regarding our school. A formal admission date will be agreed at this meeting and all required information forms completed with you.

Should we be unable to offer your child a place at the time of your application, we would be pleased to place your child on our waiting list following receipt of your written request to do so.
