Scholarship & Exhibition Programme

 In 2015 a range of new alumni sponsored Scholarships and Exhibitions were awarded to students in year 8 through to year 14, to promote the School’s values, and inspire our pupils to strive for the highest possible academic achievement. The School also awarded a range of Scholarships and Exhibitions for outstanding achievements in the fields of Sport, Music and Performing Arts.

As the majority of awards are for two years, applications will not re-open until autumn 2017.
