Scholarships Available Academic Scholarships In Year 7, those who have performed exceptionally well in the entrance examination will be called for an interview with Dr Alison Neill, Head of School. During this interview, candidates will be expected to discuss with her a subject which is of special interest to them. In Year 9, candidates will be required to sit written examination papers in English and mathematics, and samples of science and language work will need to be made available. Candidates who perform well will be called for an interview with the Head; during this interview, they will be expected to discuss a subject which is of special interest to them. Academic scholars will be expected to take a lead in the school community and participate in our Forum. The Forum is managed and organised by our Sixth Form scholars and will provide an annual programme of debates and current affairs discussions; speakers will be invited into the school to talk on specific topics of interest.

Music Scholarship Music scholarships are awarded for excellent musical skill and aptitude. Depending upon the instrument offered, a minimum of grade 3 (Associated Board) for year 7 and 8 applications would be expected. Candidates wishing to apply for a scholarship in Year 9 should be working towards Grade 5. Scholarship candidates without the specific qualification, but who can demonstrate proficiency comparable to the standard, will also be given consideration. All elements of the audition are conducted by the Head of Music, Upper School. One piece on each instrument/voice

offered for scholarship will be required. Sight reading and aural tests appropriate to the grade will be administered, followed by an interview where the candidates will be invited to discuss their particular interests in music. Any question on the rudiments of music will be related to the pieces performed. Candidates will need to provide a reference from their instrumental teacher/s. The Head of Music, Upper School, will recommend potential music scholars to the Head of School, who will in turn call them in for interview.

Sports Scholarship Candidates for a sports scholarship will have reached a high standard (eg county players) in their chosen sport or have the potential to achieve this or a higher level. Candidates will be interviewed by the Head of School Sport, and asked to perform a variety of sports-related skills and games. Candidates will need to demonstrate a keen interest in his or her chosen sport(s) and be committed to representing the school in them. Candidates who have an aptitude for an individual sport for which the school does not field a team, but who show a real talent and potential could also be considered. The Head of School Sport will recommend potential sports scholars to the Head, who will in turn call them for interview. Awards may also be available for exceptional candidates with a unique talent which does not necessarily fit into the above categories. Further information on scholarships may be obtained from the Admissions Registrar.

Scholarship Details Entry into the Upper School Scholarships are available to boys and girls who typically demonstrate high ability, interest beyond the curriculum and a willingness to make a significant contribution to the life of the school. Scholarships available include academic, music and sports. We can also consider a scholarship for an exceptional candidate with a unique talent that does not fall into these categories, but if successful may only accept one scholarship award.

Year 7 Our own pupils have automatic entry into Year 7. Those who wish to apply for a scholarship should, in the first instance, consult with the class teacher and Mr Richards, Head of Foundation to Key Stage 2. Selected pupils will sit the school entrance examination alongside external candidates wishing to join the school. Approximately one third of those who sit the school entrance examination will be called back for a formal scholarship interview with Dr Alison Neill, Head of School and Clifton High Sixth. Of this third, half are likely to receive an award which, where applicable, could be up to 25% of school fees.

For music and sports scholarships, interviews are conducted by the relevant Heads of Department as well as the Head of School.

Year 9 Scholarships are also made available for entry into Year 9.

Sixth Form For entry into Clifton High Sixth we offer academic scholarships and sports, creative arts and performing arts awards. Please see the sixth form pack for details.

Scholarships are held through to Year 13, but a scholar’s performance and contribution to the school will be reviewed annually. There are two full assisted places available for scholars whose parents can demonstrate that their financial situation warrants one.
