Scholarships are typically for up to 20% fee remission and are normally tenable for the whole of a pupil’s time at the school, subject to satisfactory progress. All scholarship offers are subject to specific criteria, as well as excellent overall academic ability, in addition to a reference from the pupil’s current school and an interview. Successful candidates will be expected to remain at Saint Nicholas until the conclusion of their GCSE studies.


Community Award

A Community Award, worth up to 100% of the fees following means-testing, is available to pupils entering Year 7 with outstanding overall academic ability. Priority is given to local applicants who require either full or substantial funding in order to take up the offer of a place. Offers are subject to the results of the school’s academic assessments, a taster day, which is spent in class, a reference from the pupil’s current school and interview. In assessing a child’s suitability, potential will also be considered as well as actual achievement. Each pupil to whom support is offered must, in the opinion of the Headmaster, be likely to make excellent academic progress following admission. Previous school reports will be consulted for evidence of good behaviour.
