Scholarships at Terra Nova School
Terra Nova School has had a tradition of making generous Scholarship awards. Scholarships fall into five categories:
- Performing Arts
- Creative Arts
Awards are made to pupils looking to enter Year 7. Pupils can sit the Scholarship assessments in Year 6.
All potential scholars will sit papers in Maths, English and Verbal reasoning, and be interviewed by two members of the Senior Leadership Team.
Candidates must show exceptional academic ability across the curriculum combined with a keen interest, and they sit the Scholarship Examination: they spend a day at the school and awards are made on the basis of mathematical papers, written papers, Verbal reasoning and interview with at least two members of the Senior Leadership Team.
Creative Art Scholarships
A small number of Creative Arts Scholarships are awarded each year, most of which carry a fee remission of up to 10%. Awards are made on the basis of a personal portfolio, a practical assessment and an interview.
Each year, several pupils are assessed for an E. Owen All-Rounder Scholarship. All-rounder candidates must present two areas for assessment: Creative arts (Art or DT) + Sport / Performing Arts.
Performing Arts Scholarships
We award Performing Arts Scholarships each year, worth up to 10% of the fees depending on the quality of musicianship or performance and the range of entry in any one year. In addition, Music Scholars receive discounted music tuition on one instrument, to be review annually.
Scholars are expected to play a full part in the performing arts life of the School during their time at Terra Nova. Candidates should provide any evidence of external examinations or performances with their application.
A number of Sports Scholarships are awarded annually, worth up to 10% of the fees. Candidates will spend a day at Terra Nova, during which they will be evaluated in their chosen sports and a variety of other fitness and decision-making tests.
The school will also take into account references supplied by the candidate’s school and by other individuals involved in coaching the candidate. Sports Scholars are expected to play a full part in the sporting life of the School during their time at Terra Nova.
The scholarship criteria documents act as a guide for potential scholars and are not exhaustive.
