Scholarships for Candidates currently in Year 5 or 6
Terra Nova School has had a tradition of making generous Scholarship awards. Scholarships fall into various categories – Academic, The Performing Arts, The Creative Arts, Sport and All-Rounder. Awards are made to pupils looking to enter Year 7. Pupils can sit the Scholarship assessments in either Years 5 or 6.
Candidates for these awards sit the Scholarship Examination.
They spend a day at the school and awards are made on the basis of mathematical papers, written papers and interview with at least two members of the Senior Leadership Team.
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.
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.
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.
One E. Owen All-Rounder Scholarship is awarded each year.
Candidates will be assessed in four equally-weighted areas: two specialist areas selected from Sport, Music, Drama and either Art or DT; an interview with a senior member of Terra Nova School staff; and a short test and written exercise.
