The Cathedral School offers a range of scholarships including Academic, Music and Sport for pupils joining Year 7 and Year 12. The Cardiff Rugby Scholarship was launched in September 2021 for Year 12 entry. Following our partnership with the Cardiff Rugby Academy programme, we are able to offer up to 100% funding for talented rugby players, recommended by Cardiff Rugby, who require that level of funding to attend the School. 

There is no need to apply for an Academic Scholarship in Year 7 as the entrance test results are used to identify pupils who will be considered further for these awards. Applications are necessary for Year 12 Academic Scholarships.

In addition, The Cathedral School provides a small number of financial bursaries each year, which are means tested, based on the Independent Schools Bursar Association structure (ISBA). For Year 7 we invite applications for one of three Foundation Bursaries which may be up to 100% of fees.
