d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form scholarships and awards are given to students who show outstanding achievement and potential. They should also be willing to make a significant contribution to the life of the school and its student community. The value of a Sixth Form scholarship or award will vary and is always at the discretion of the school, up to a maximum of 25% of tuition fees. Scholarships and awards can occasionally be supplemented with a means-tested bursary. We offer Academic, Art, Music, Drama and Sports scholarships. This year we are also introducing awards to an in-house student journalist and film or video maker/photographer.
All scholarships and awards are based on the strength of a written examination, as well as an interview, a personal statement, a reference from your current school, predicted GCSE grades and any other appropriate supporting material. The deadlines for each scholarship are listed below.
New for 2019: Be your Best Scholarship
This new award is to recognise exceptional talent and ability in whatever area a student may have demonstrated this. Rather than pre-determine where such achievement may have occurred we will considered students’ achievements in any area where they clearly “stand out”. Brilliant coders, environmental campaigners, wellbeing champions… whatever it might be if a student is a leader in their field for their age we are happy to consider your application. To apply “Be your Best” applicants will be asked to give a presentation outlining their achievements and what they can bring to the school. They will be interviewed based on this. They will sit a general paper and have a general interview as well.
