Application process for a Performing Arts Scholarship place in Year 7
September 2020 entry
Up to 18 Performing Arts Scholarships will be offered each year to students who show a particular aptitude in one of the Performing Arts. All applicants will be notified in writing of the outcome of their Aptitude Test before the closing date for secondary applications on 31st October 2019.
When a scholarship is offered it is on the understanding that students will take part in extra-curricular activities (both sacred and secular), be ambassadors for the Performing Arts, and behave in an exemplary manner around the school at all times. In KS4, Scholars are expected to take GCSE in their specialist subject.
Applicants for Performing Arts Scholarship places who are not offered a place under this category will automatically be considered for other places at SMSJ according to any other category that may apply. Pupils who are already on roll at St Mary’s and St John’s School are also welcome to apply to become Performing Art Scholars.
