Up to eight scholarships are awarded for entry to the Sixth Form. These are available under three categories:
Salesian Ethos Scholarships
Outstanding Ability Scholarships
Academic Excellence Scholarships
Each individual scholarship is for a reduction in fees of £1,500 annually for each of the two years of Sixth Form study subject to satisfactory performance and review at the end of the Lower Sixth.
Scholarships will be awarded to the students in Year 11 who, by their conduct and actions during their time at the College, have demonstrated (in the eyes of the Awards Committee) the greatest commitment to the Salesian ethos.
Scholarships will be awarded to the students in Year 11 who, by their participation during their time at the College, have demonstrated (in the eyes of the Awards Committee) outstanding ability in any one or more non-academic areas of college life.
Scholarships will be awarded to students who enter the Lower Sixth and who have achieved the best academic results in their GCSE examinations. For this purpose, the scholarships awarded for Academic Excellence will be determined by the quality of the results - greatest number of points achieved.
Should more than four students be eligible to be awarded a scholarship in this category, then their award will be determined by the quality of their academic achievement rather than the quantity of examinations passed.
The Headmaster will notify the successful candidates by letter and will make a formal announcement of these awards at the Distribution of Prizes in November
These awards are distinct from the scholarships offered. Any student, boy or girl, who enters the Salesian College Sixth Form and has a younger sibling studying at the College, is entitled to a Keeping Families Together award. The financial worth of this award is a 25% discount off the full fees for each year of sixth form study. No application for a Keeping Families Together award is required, except for confirmation of entitlement.
