Our BSB Scholarship rewards all-round excellence as reflected in pupils’ academic and personal ambition

BSB Scholarship for Excellence

The BSB Scholarship for Excellence rewards all-round excellence as reflected in pupils’ academic and/or personal ambition, independence of thought and learning, enthusiasm to work beyond the syllabus and/or commitment to co-curricular activities.

Every year The British School offer a scholarship to two of our current pupils, which covers 25% of the tuition fees over two years.

Applicants’ academic record, personal qualities, cultural interests, participation in the school community and other extra-curricular activities will all be considered when awarding the scholarship. Particular focus will also be placed on the ways in which a potential scholar believes they could improve student engagement and development during their two years in the Pre-University programme.

Upon receiving the reward scholars will take a representative role within the school, presenting at events throughout the year, supporting new and potential students, and liaising with the Head of Year 13 to communicate current student interests and help develop a balanced learning community.
