Sixth Form scholarships are available for students entering Year 12 and are awarded based on the number of A and A* grades achieved at GCSE.

The award of a scholarship confers a status upon the holder and it is reflected in their reference when they apply for university and higher education. Scholarship holders are seen as an example to other students and are, therefore, expected to demonstrate high standards of work and behaviour in order to maintain their scholarship place. Scholarships are also subject to all normal terms and conditions in relation to the payment of fees.
