Shiplake College is offering a scholarship to a boy currently at a state-maintained primary school who would be looking to join Year 7 in September 2018. The scholarship is particularly aimed at boys who would not be able to attend Shiplake without substantial financial assistance.
The All Rounder scholarship would be awarded to boys who excel academically and also display talent, or show the potential to, in other areas of school life such as sport, music, art or drama. Up to 100% assistance may be given for the right candidate; families should be prepared to make a means-tested bursary application. The scholarship is available to day pupils or flexi, weekly or full boarders.
Applicants would be invited to one of the Year 7 entrance assessment days and the Academic Scholarship afternoon; an additional application for a Music or Sport Scholarship would be an advantage. The scholarship would continue throughout the duration of a pupil’s time at the College, provided the boy’s conduct and performance is maintained.
Contact the Registrar, Mrs Esther Pasmore, to find out more. The deadline for applications is Friday 1 December; please click here to apply online. Assessments take place in January 2018. Please see the Year 7 Admissions page for a full timeline.
