Exemplum Docet Society

Shiplake's Scholars form part of The Exemplum Docet Society (named after the school motto, meaning 'the example teaches'). The society is run by Master of Scholars, Mr Joe Player.

Scholarships and exhibitions are merit-based awards designed to reward excellence and celebrate and nurture exceptional talent. Scholarships are offered to pupils who demonstrate outstanding academic, sporting or artistic ability. The progress of scholars is closely monitored and they are expected to maintain an exemplary level of behaviour and commitment to their studies, as well as contributing actively to their field of scholarship.

Our scholars are identified around school by scholars’ badges and will receive additional enhancement and enrichment opportunities in their field of scholarship, such as trips, speakers and access to competitions.
