Music Scholarships

If you would like to apply for one of our A Level or GCSE Music scholarships please contact us using the form below. 

It is a practice in many private schools to offer fee discounts in the form of scholarships for academically bright students. David Game College is pleased to offer a variety of scholarships to students who demonstrate natural ability and potential that can be nurtured by us and above all have a hunger to work hard to achieve the best they can.

We are looking to offer a range of Music and Music Technology scholarships for GCSE and A Level Music and Music Technology students for September 2024 entry, including:


10%, 25%, 50% and 100% discount of the tuition fee in the academic year 2023-24.

Applicants for our A Level and GCSE Music scholarships will be asked to submit the following; 

  • Cover letter/personal statement from the student
  • Details of your last exam in your chosen instrument: A Level candidate Grade 6 or higher, GCSE Grade 4 or higher
  • A recording of a performance, lasting approximately 2 minutes.

Any applicant invited to an interview will also need to perform a piece of their choice and may be asked to undertake sight reading, music theory or other tests to demonstrate knowledge and ability. A reference of recommendation from your Music/Peripatetic teacher may also be required. 

When awarding scholarships, the key elements we are likely to consider are applicants’ test scores, performance at interview, school reports and references.   

If you wish to apply for a scholarship for September 2024 please feel free to contact us using the form below.

This opportunity is not open to students who require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK. Should an applicant hold an alternative non-Tier 4 visa then this visa must be valid and maintained for the duration of their course.

Scholarships students are not only expected to perform well academically but they should also contribute to the wider experiences at the College such as our clubs, councils, societies and teams. Scholarship students are also expected to perform at various College events, such as Open Days. They should also demonstrate an exemplary attitude to learning, complete all work on time and meet the attendance requirements of the College.

A scholarship may be withdrawn if any of the following occur:

  • if the student’s attendance level is not in line with college policy
  • if the student is deemed  not to be reaching their potential in progress assessments or formal examinations in the sole opinion of the College
  • if the student’s behaviour falls below the standard expected by the College and/or is cause of concern for the safety of their peers,  teachers, staff or the student themself, in the sole opinion of the College

Scholarships will be offered on the assumption that David Game College will be able to meet the reasonable needs of the applicant while they study at the College. If after awarding a scholarship we are not, in our sole opinion, able to meet the needs of the student then alterations to the course may be necessary which may incur additional fees not encompassed in the scholarship offer.

The successful applicants who are awarded a scholarship should be discreet and should not disclose that they have received a scholarship to their peers.

Scholarships are awarded at the sole discretion of the David Game College whose decision is final. Whilst we are looking to offer scholarships we may offer no scholarships if we deem, in our sole opinion, there are no suitable applicants.
