We have been delighted by the record number of candidates who are interested in joining our Sixth Form in September 2013.
Around 150 candidates in total are taking part in our assessments, the majority of whom attended our Sixth Form Assessment Weekend last Friday and Saturday.
This year we had considerable interest in the new Alex Wilson Dayboy Scholarship, a means-tested scholarship for sporting and academic excellence offfering up to 100% of the day fees.
During the Assessment Weekend, all candidates sit 4 academic exams, and have an academic as well as a pastoral interview. A number of candidates are also tested for specialist scholarships in sport, art, music and drama. Despite their hectic schedules, the candidates do also have a chance to get to know one another and some of our current Sixth Form pupils, and all are invited to a social gathering on the Friday evening. Potential boarders are also offered accommodation for the Friday night.
