Our Sports Scholars lead by example, both on and off the pitch, and represent College at all levels. They will regularly play for at least two College teams (often one summer and one winter sport), usually achieving county honours or higher. As well as taking advantage of our excellent sports facilities, girls will be supported by dedicated teachers and expert coaches to help them further develop both physically and psychologically to support them in achieving their personal sporting ambitions. In turn, our Sports Scholars coach the younger girls, and encourage peers and team mates on and off the pitch.
Applications are welcome from 13+ and 16+ applicants. Candidates are invited to attend an Assessment Day, which will involve interviews and practical assessments including various fitness tests, drills and conditioned games to test technical knowledge and skills.
There are no Sport Scholarships or Sporting Exhibitions available at 11+ or 12+ entry. This is a complex time and we believe it is important to recognise that there are a wide range of factors that influence the rates at which young people develop sporting talent.
Sporting development through the teenage years is a personal journey of advancements, hence our support needs to reflect this changing progress of the individual and be appropriate and encouraging to all.
During Years 7 and 8, College has a support structure to foster the sporting ambitions of girls in this age group, and internal scholarships and exhibitions are available as girls progress to Year 9.
