Exceptional ability is celebrated at Wellingborough, and the highly prized title of Scholar is one way in which talent is recognised. A Scholar is a pupil who contributes to the whole of School life, shows outstanding ability and commitment in a specific discipline, and is dedicated to their own progress whilst supporting the aims of the area in which they excel.

A Scholarship is applied for by the pupil, not the parent, and there is a rigorous selection process including an interview. The title Scholar is accompanied by a small monetary award - up to £100 per year in Years 7 to 11 and up to £200 per year in the Sixth Form, which is accessed by the Scholar writing to the Headmaster during the School year explaining how they would like to spend the money. The expectation is that it will be spent on something relevant to the area in which the pupil is a Scholar.
