Our Scholars Award application process has been updated!
Please see below for the most up-to-date information.
We are delighted to be able to offer a number of Scholars’ Awards to hard-working, high-achieving and ambitious students who have applied to study at our friendly and supportive college.
A Scholar’s Award would enable you to take part in additional, ‘super-curricular’, activities to help you excel in your subjects and aspire to the highest possible achievement in your study programme.
Each Award is worth £500.
How you spend your award would be entirely your decision, but examples of ways that you could enrich your learning include:
- UK or overseas travel to a place relevant to your studies;
- attendance at exhibitions, conferences or other events;
- purchase of books or journals, or subscriptions to online magazines;
- purchase of additional items such as art supplies or photographic equipment.
Scholar Award applications will be considered from students who:
- are predicted to achieve an average GCSE Grade 8 or above.
- are applying to study on an A Level / Level 3 programme of study.
- once enroled at Long Road, have an attendance of 95% or above for their first half-term of study (September - October).
Applications received after the deadline of 12noon on Friday 28th April 2023 may still be considered at the discretion of the Principal. We strongly advise students to apply before the deadline to ensure their application is considered.
Applications will be reviewed after the October half-term. Students will be contacted as to the success of their application in early November.
