What does a Scholarship mean at Sidcot?
A Sidcot Scholarship is not just about celebrating and nurturing excellence, it’s about sharing it. Our Scholarship students are given the opportunity to engage in tailored enrichment activities and extra support in their awarded subject. Supported by staff who are experts in their field, students are encouraged to challenge themselves and to achieve their very best.
Scholarship students are ambassadors of Sidcot who share their enthusiasm and encourage fellow students to take an active interest in their subject area.
Scholarships for September 2021
We invite new students to apply for a Scholarship which will entitle them to a 10% reduction in tuition fees.
Scholarship entry points are:
- Sixth Form – Year 12 (Deadline for applications: Monday 26 October 2020)
- Senior School – Years 7, 9 and 10 (Deadline for applications: Friday 8 January 2021)*
* Academic tests and interviews will take place on Saturday, 16th January with special talent assessments taking place during week commencing 18th January.
Current students in Years 6 and Year 11 who do not already hold a Scholarship, may also apply as they are in transition to Senior School and Sixth Form respectively.
Students at Sidcot who have already gained a Scholarship will retain their award and title throughout their time at the School, subject to an annual review of their performance and providing they continue to show the attributes of a Scholar. Those moving from Year 11 to Sixth Form will have an interview to ensure their continued commitment and suitability as a Scholar, but will not need to take any formal assessment papers.
Gifted & Talented
Scholars in Years 7-11 will be invited to join our Lead Learner Programme alongside students who have been identified as extremely competent in their chosen subject areas. Academic Scholars and All-rounder Scholars will be encouraged to stretch and challenge themselves in all subject areas and will be invited to get involved with enrichment activities, both inside and outside the classroom in their preferred subject areas.
Scholars in the Sixth Form will be invited onto our Aspire Programme and will become Ambassadors of the School. They will be invited to take part in an exciting programme of events and activities related to Oxbridge and top Russell-Group Universities and Careers.
