PERFORMING aRTS Scholarships
Applicants for Performing Arts scholarships are required to prepare a short monologue and a song which will be performed in front of the Performing Arts team. These must be chosen to best highlight the candidate’s abilities. In addition to these performances, there will be a discussion about the pieces and a workshop to ascertain the applicant’s ability in dance. Appropriate clothes should be worn for this. The whole process should take no longer than an hour and is designed to put candidates at ease and to provide an enjoyable experience.
Applicants will be expected to present a portfolio of work and be prepared to discuss that work and also discuss gallery visits they may have made. Applicants will also be required to produce a still life sketch within 30 minutes.
Applications are invited from all instrumentalists and singers to attend auditions before entry into the school in September. The school has a strong musical reputation and recipients of scholarships will be expected to play a full part in the musical life of the school. Applicants should be prepared to play 2 contrasting pieces on their instrument or using their voice which may be accompanied or unaccompanied. Sight reading and aural tests will also be given in order to ascertain potential as well as attainment.
Applications are invited from athletic and talented young sportspeople who can make a significant contribution to the range of major sports offered by Abbotsholme School, Hockey and Cricket.
Pupils will be assessed in their sport during the taster day and references will be sought from outside coaches or clubs. Our coaching team of Clive Jacobs for Cricket, Kevin Heath and Laura Askew for Hockey, will look to assess your skill level and fitness in a fun, engaging and welcoming environment.
Academic scholarships are available and are assessed based on the results achieved by the candidate in the Entrance Examinations.
Prospective students can also apply for bursaries. These are means-tested and are designed to allow pupils who would not otherwise be able to attend the School to do so.
The school entrance tests will take place on Monday 21 January.
