Two awards are available for entry into Year 12. The scholarships offer a 25% reduction on the current UK full boarding fees which will run for the duration of the student’s sixth form education.
Applicants can be existing Year 11 pupils or candidates from outside the school but they must be new to boarding at Leweston.
Successful applicants will join Eleanor House (girls) or Antony House (boys). Award holders will be asked to take on leadership roles in their Houses and to demonstrate high personal standards of behaviour, discipline, appearance and organisation. They are expected to be an excellent role model for other students and to be ambassadors for the school. Scholars should demonstrate commitment to their studies, an enthusiastic approach to life in the Sixth Form and to make a significant contribution to the extra-curricular life within the school.
As part of the application candidates are required to submit a letter (maximum 400 words) outlining their academic interests, achievements and ambitions as well as how they will contribute to the life of the Sixth Form. Candidates will also attend an interview (in person or online) with the Headmaster and Director of Boarding.
