New Scholarship on offer at Rendcomb college
A new scholarship has been launched at Rendcomb College for pupils joining Year 3 from September 2017.
The 7+ Scholarship will be open to children who will join Year 3 from September 2017 and is available to both current and new pupils. The College is now accepting applications until December this year.
Head of Juniors at Rendcomb College, Victoria Beevers (pictured) said: “We have introduced this new scholarship as a way of recognising and rewarding pupils who show promise and potential in our younger years. This is the first time the school has offered a scholarship at this level and is very much aligned with our ethos of providing an inclusive and broad-ranging education.”
Victoria continued: “Recipients of the 7+ Scholarship will be expected to be role models amongst their peers and will be rewarded with a percentage reduction of school fees, in addition to the honour and responsibility that comes with being a scholar.”
Applicants will be invited to attend a Scholarship Day at the College where they will take part in tasks and discussions to assess group interaction and problem solving skills, in addition to demonstrating their literacy and numeracy skills in written tests. Children can also opt to demonstrate a specific talent or skill as part of the process.
The 7+ Scholarship adds to Rendcomb College’s current suite of awards offered in academic, art, drama, music and sport at 11+, 13+ and 16+.
