Every year Leweston is proud to award scholarships which recognise and encourage pupils with talent, potential and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school.
Scholarships are available for Academic Excellence, Art and Design, Equestrian, Music, Drama, Sport and Pentathlon and can be applied for at 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12).
As with everything this year our scholarship process will look a little different. We have taken an early decision to plan for predominantly online assessments. As a ‘virtual’ scholarship day will require submission of video, log books and online portfolios we want to ensure that our candidates, and their families, have enough time to gather the best information that they can. We will continue to ‘meet’ all of our candidates via zoom and will ensure that the process is as open and supportive as it would normally be. Of course, if nearer the time we are able to welcome candidates on site for some, or all, of the assessment elements we will do this.
As some parts of the process need to be completed at home before the application deadline we would encourage you to register your interest in a scholarship as early as possible. The deadline for applications at 16+ is Friday 13 November and 11+ and 13+ is Friday 8 January.
Further detailed information about the assessment for each award is available on the scholarships page of the website https://www.leweston.co.uk/admissions/admissions-2/scholarships and Mrs Smith, our Registrar, is very happy to answer any questions.
