How are the Scholarships awarded?
Awards vary from year to year, as do the candidates. The process ensures that applicants are appropriately awarded in the discipline/s in which they performed most successfully. In a year of high achieving candidates, it could be that there are only a few high awards. Alternatively, it could be that many candidates are worthy of an award and therefore more awards of a lesser amount would be offered.
How quickly will we hear the results after the Scholarship Assessment Days?
After conclusion of the Scholarship Assessment Days the process of assessing the results is commenced immediately, with a view to making any awards as soon as possible. Many pupils apply for more than one discipline meaning the assessment process can prove complicated but results are usually sent to parents by February half term.
How do we prepare our child for the academic scholarship examinations?
The tests used on our Scholarship Assessment Day are designed to show the overall ability of the candidate and as such cannot be specifically prepared for. They are not to be feared and are conducted in a friendly environment. Applicants are invited to wear home clothes for the day.
How long do Scholarship awards last?
Scholarships awarded in Year 7 normally continue through to the completion of A Levels. They are subject to continued effort and performance as set out in the Scholarship offer letter.
Are Scholarships considered at entry into other year groups?
Applications other than those for Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12 are considered on a case by case basis as appropriate.
