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.

Route 3 - Post GCSE Results Scholarship Awards
The minimum scholarship based on five GCSEs at grade 7 would be £1125 per annum, with each additional grade 7 adding £225 per annum and each additional grade 8 or above £450 per annum. Thus a pupil achieving five grade 7 and five grade 8/9 GCSEs would be awarded £3375 per annum.
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.
