Scholarship Programme

As part of our commitment to a broad and vibrant curriculum, accessible to all, we have developed the Sixth Form Scholarship Programme, a unique collaboration between The New Sixth and our corporate sponsors.

Each sponsor has made a significant commitment to supporting our students’ academic learning experience through a combination of financial scholarship, formal mentoring, careers guidance and work experience in order to prepare students for the challenges, adventures and opportunities of the world of work.

Each Scholarship is worth £500, provided in vouchers or through meeting a specific course expense, and will be awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional academic talent or community spirit and endeavour. These funds are to be provided to support our outstanding students in their studies and expand their opportunities beyond the classroom.

Applications are invited from exemplary candidates in Year 12 and Year 13 who play an active role in supporting the Sixth Form. Scholarships will be awarded in the autumn term. Each scholarship is designed to meet the specific interests of both the sponsor and the student; having reviewed the offers, students can apply for a specific scholarship or make an open application for consideration against all scholarships.

Applications are open from Friday 27 September and close Friday 11 October at 4pm (please note, any applications received after this point will not be considered).

To apply you need to write a letter of application explaining why you deserve to receive the scholarship and how you intend to use the financial award to support your education. Applications should be no more than one side of A4.

Please submit applications FAO of Miss Butler either electronically to or as a hard copy handed to Mrs Nokes in the LRC.
