St Ives Celebrates Year 6 Scholarship Success!
Published : 28 February 2017
We're delighted to announce that over 50% of our Year 6 pupils have secured scholarships at prestigious independent senior schools this year – the highest number on record! 25% of the pupils will be joining our sister school Guildford High School in September, including one pupil who was awarded an Academic Exhibition. Students were also awarded scholarships to a wide range of senior schools including; Prior’s Field School, Cranleigh and Frensham Heights. The scholarships were awarded in academic studies as well as drama, art, music and sport.
Congratulating her pupils, Mrs Kay Goldsworthy, Headteacher at St Ives said:
“Being awarded a scholarship to senior school is a great achievement for both the children and St Ives. The competition for these awards is extremely high and we are very proud of all our girls and we look forward to seeing them progress successfully onto the next stages of their school careers.”
At St Ives we hold our own Assessment Days during the Spring term when children are invited in to spend a day with us to be informally assessed for a scholarship. Scholarships are awarded to pupils, from within and outside of the school, who demonstrate exceptional academic ability and/or a particular talent and enthusiasm in art, drama, music or sport. The number of school scholarships awarded each year is at the discretion of the Governors and the Head.
Our Assessment Days in 2017 take place on:
Monday 6th March – Academic
Tuesday 7th March – Art, Music, Drama and Sport
