Sixth Form Scholarship Awards
There are three types of scholarships for the Sixth Form available:
1 - CONTINUATION SCHOLARSHIPS - current scholars only
2 - GIFTED AND TALENTED SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CREATIVE & PERFORMING ARTS AND SPORT - CURRENT AND NEW STUDENTS
These awards are offered in specific skills areas where the student has a known specialism in Art, Music/Choral, Drama and Sport to the value of £1,260 per annum.
Candidates invited to interview are expected to converse well in the areas of excellence they have selected and provide a portfolio or supporting letter of recommendation from teachers and/or coaches. Existing Scholars at Claires Court Senior Boys and Girls are able to apply at this stage for an award in a new area.
3 - ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS - CURRENT AND NEW STUDENTS
These are offered based on predicted outstanding performance at GCSE level and current school records, normally using grade 8 or higher as a benchmark. There are up to six Scholarships available to both internal and external applicants with an award value of £3,780 per annum. To apply for the Academic Scholarship, applicants must be predicted to achieve at least five GCSEs at Grade 8 or above. This therefore can be applied for before the GCSE exams have been taken.
Academic Awards for GCSE Grades Achieved
There are academic awards which are presented on actual academic outcomes where a minim of five GCSEs at grade 8 has been achieved*.
*These are separate to the Academic Scholarships and cannot be combined.
The minimum award based on five GCSEs at grade 8 would be £1,125 per annum, with each additional grade 8 adding £225 per annum and each additional grade 9 adding £450 per annum. The maximum award for this scholarship is £4,500.
No application is required. This means that if your son or daughter achieves the required results at GCSE, the financial discount will be applied to your fees for September.
Late applications after GCSE results for a September start may be considered subject to scholarship availability.
Please note: If an award has already been made based on interview and target grades, and the amount earned is higher as a result of actual grades awarded, the higher amount will apply.
Please note that any scholarship currently held by an existing Year 11 pupil will cease at the end of Year 11.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR 2023/24.
