Scholarships & Bursaries
The American Poet, James Russell Lovell, claimed that “True scholarship consists in knowing not what things exist, but what they mean; it is not memory but judgment”. At Claremont Senior School we are seeking to build a Sixth Form community that produces students who appreciate the meaning of things and have the judgement required to thrive in an ever- changing and complicated world. Scholars across the various disciplines will provide the backbone of the school’s new Sixth Form community.
Applications for scholarships into the new Sixth Form with entry in September 2018 are now closed. By their very nature scholarships are designed to award outstanding potential and achievement in a number of areas: Academic, Performing Arts, Art & Design, Equestrian and Sports.
The award of a scholarship to a pupil carries with it certain responsibilities and expectations. We would expect Claremont scholars to play a full part in the life of the school, in particular in our varied co-curricular and extracurricular programme. They should be hungry for success and be keen to play a leading role in the Claremont community. Awards are intended for the duration of a student’s attendance at the school, as long as the individual contributes enthusiastically to the life of the school. Scholarships are reviewed on an annual basis. The size and number of scholarships is at the discretion of the Director and Headmaster of CSS.
Bursaries are also available for those of modest financial circumstances. These are means tested and also given at the discretion of the Headmaster and Director of CSS.
