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
“I enjoy how we often go outside the syllabus to delve further into the subject. This often leads to a better appreciation of what we are stuyding.”
“d’Overbroeck’s gave me confidence, a set of good grades and lasting memories of students and teachers.”
‘I came to d’Overbroeck’s because of the unique atmosphere it has, much more relaxed than my previous school, more opportunity for independence, room for everybody to be themselves.’
“The Sixth Form is fantastic.”
“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.”
