Royal Russell Scholarships

How does the Scholarship Scheme work? 

Royal Russell School offers scholarships from Years 7, 9 and 12 for excellence in overall Academic performance, Art, Music, Drama and Sport. Scholarships are awarded in recognition of achievement in these areas and, although the scholarship provides a percentage reduction in the school fees, we believe the financial benefit of a scholarship is secondary to the recognition of the pupil’s potential for success.  The award of a scholarship confers a status upon the holder which will go forward with them in move to higher education.  Scholarship holders are seen as an example to other pupils and are, therefore, expected to demonstrate high standards of work and behaviour in order to maintain their scholarship place.  Scholarships are awarded through to completion of GCSE in Year 11 when re-assessment will take place for possible continuation for Sixth Form.  Scholarships are subject to all normal terms and conditions in relation to the payment of fees.
