Scholarships are available for GCSE courses commencing in September 2019. These scholarships are for students who demonstrate a high aptitude in mathematics and science.
A number of scholarships will be available:
25%, 50% or 100% discount of the tuition fee in the academic year 2019-20
Applicants will sit a test that will assess their capabilities in data handling, cause and effect relationships in basic scientific concepts and mathematics. The same single test will be taken by all students.
The top-performing applicants will then be invited to an interview with their parents/guardians.
When awarding scholarships, the key points we consider are applicants’ scholarship test scores, performance at interview, school reports and references.
Scholarship interviews and testing dates will be announced shortly.
*Only the top-performing students will be invited to interview
Important Information (Terms and Conditions)
These scholarships are available to new students only and are not available for existing (enrolled) students.
Scholarships apply to tuition fees only. In addition to the tuition fees and not included in the scholarships are: registration fees, accommodation fees, practical/material fees or examination fees. Text books are not included in the tuition fees. You can see our 2019-20 fee scale here for more information.
To be eligible to apply for the GCSE scholarships applicants must have completed year 9 or year 10 in the academic year 2018-19 and be aged between 13-15 on 1st September 2019.
This opportunity is not open to students who require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK. Should an applicant hold an alternative non-Tier 4 visa then this visa must be valid and maintained for the duration of their course.
Scholarships students are not only expected to perform well academically but they should also contribute to the wider experiences at the College such as our clubs, councils, societies and teams. They should also demonstrate an exemplary attitude to learning, complete all work on time and meet the attendance requirements of the College.
A scholarship may be withdrawn if any of the following occur:
- if the student’s attendance level is not in line with college policy
- if the student is deemed not to be reaching their potential in progress assessments or formal examinations
- if the student’s behaviour falls below the standard expected by the College and/or is cause of concern for the safety of their peers, teachers, staff or the student them self
Scholarships will be offered on the assumption that David Game College will be able to meet the reasonable needs of the applicant while they study at the College. If after awarding a scholarship we are not able to meet the needs of the student then alterations to the course may be necessary which may incur additional fees not encompassed in the scholarship offer.
The successful applicants who are awarded a scholarship should be discreet and should not disclose that they have received a scholarship to their peers.
