Sixth Form Scholarship Awards
There are three routes to Sixth Form Scholarships
Route 1 - Academic Scholarships
Route 2 - Supporting Scholarships
Supporting Scholarships are offered in specific skills/subject areas where the student has a known specialism.
These areas are Art, Choral, Drama, Music and Sport and awards are to the value of £1260 per annum. Supporting scholarships are additional to the academic awards gained via Route 1.
Candidates will be called to interview and are expected to speak well in the areas of excellence they have selected.
Please note that any scholarship currently held by an existing Year 11 pupil will cease at the end of Year 11.

where a minimum of 5A grades has been gained. For each A grade, £225 per annum

The minimum scholarship based on 5A grades would be £1125 per annum, with each
additional A grade adding £225 per annum and each additional A* grade £450 per
annum. Thus a pupil achieving 5A grades and 5A* grades would be awarded £3375
If an award has already been made based on interview and target grades in Route
1, and the amount earned is higher as a result of actual grades awarded, the higher
amount will apply.
