Value of Scholarships:
Scholarships come in the form of remission of tuition fees. The value of each Scholarship may vary. The School reserves the right to withhold a Scholarship if there are no candidates of sufficient merit. There are limited scholarship placements available.
Length and Tenure of Scholarships:
Scholarships are subject to an annual formal review by the School in the light of progress, performance and attitude of the holder. It should be noted, however, that holders of Scholarships can normally expect the Scholarship to continue until the end of Year 10 (or whatever other period for which the Scholarships have initially been offered).
