Shiplake College is offering one special All-Rounder scholarship to a boy currently at a state-maintained primary school seeking to join us our Year 7 in September 2019. The John Eggar Scholarship, named after a the College's Headmaster between 1963 and 1979, is particularly aimed at boys who would not be able to attend Shiplake without substantial financial support, and up to 100% assistance may be awarded for the right candidate.
The John Eggar Scholarship is awarded to one boy who excels academically and also displays talent, or shows the potential to, in other areas of school life such as sport, music, art or drama. The scholarship is available to day pupils or flexi, weekly or full boarders, and families should be prepared to make a means-tested bursary application.
Applicants will be invited to one of the Year 7 entrance assessment days and the Academic Scholarship afternoon, both of which take place in January. An additional application for a Music or Sport Scholarship would be an advantage.
Please note that this is a highly competitive process as substantial financial assistance is not generally available from Year 7 and this scholarship would continue throughout a pupil’s time at the College, provided the boy’s conduct and performance is maintained.
Please contact the Registrar, Mrs Esther Pasmore, to find out more. The deadline for applications is Friday 30 November 2018; please click here to apply online. Please see the Year 7 Admissions page for a full timeline.
