d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form scholarships are awarded 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 exhibition award will vary and is always at the discretion of the school, up to a maximum of 40% of tuition fees. Scholarships and exhibitions can occasionally be supplemented with a means-tested bursary. We offer Academic, Science, Art, Music & Drama scholarships.
All scholarships are awarded on the strength of a special 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.
Our scholars, past and present
“d’Overbroeck’s gave me confidence, a set of good grades and lasting memories of students and teachers.” David is now reading Music at the University of Southampton.
“I have gained more confidence in myself. I feel like the teachers have always been pushing me to achieve the very best I can, encouraging me in a positive and supportive way.”
“The Sixth Form is fantastic. Teachers encourage you to have and share your own ideas, helping you to become an independent thinker.”
Jamie studied Economics, History and English in the Sixth Form. He was a superb debater and last year his team made it through to the regional finals of the English Speaking Union’s debating competition.
“d’Overbroeck’s was a great balance of academic support and recreational activities which meant the Sixth Form was productive without ever being boring.”
“I think d’Overbroeck’s stands out through the genuine (and contagious!) passion teachers have for their subjects and the care and attention they give to each and every student.”
