As a school which values pupil progress and application, we are keen to show commitment to pupils who excel and show great progress in the classroom and beyond. It is for this reason that we offer scholarships and awards, which help to celebrate your son or daughter’s success.
Academic Scholarships are offered from the 2019/2020 academic year. They will be offered based on entrance assessment results.
Candidates will be assessed in the early part of the Spring Term; there will be practical assessments in sport and music. Academic scholarships are automatically offered based on the 11+ entrance results.
We realise that some pupils blossom after they have joined us or that some parents might be looking to transfer their son or daughter to join us some time after Year 7.
Hence, some 13+ scholarships for internal and external applicants are available. These are awarded at the start of Year 9 for the duration of the pupil’s time in school.
If your son or daughter wishes to be considered for a 13+ scholarship, please make an application by submitting a brief letter to me by the closing date of January 2019. Your son or daughter should also write a letter of application explaining his/her suitability to be an award recipient; in particular he/she should outline their commitment to the chosen area of school life. If your child wishes to submit supporting evidence (pictures or examples of work for example) he/she is encouraged to do so.
A limited number of scholarships will be awarded, under the following headings:
- Performing Arts
Candidates will be assessed in the early part of the Spring Term. There will be practical assessments in the creative arts and sport and a written scholarship test for the academic in Maths, English, French and Science. Pupils who are already in receipt of 11+ scholarship awards are free to apply. Please complete the attached form with accompanying letter to apply.
Sixth Form scholarships will be awarded under the following subjects: Academic, Art, Music, Performing Arts and Sport. Candidates will be invited for practical assessments in the creative arts and sport and a written scholarship test for the academic award. Students will also be interviewed by the Headteacher and Deputy Head.
I hope that your son/daughter will be keen to take up this opportunity to make an application and I look forward to receiving them.
