We offer a number of scholarships for talented pupils. The scholarships examinations take place in the January prior to September entry.

Year 7 & 9  Scholarships

Luckley Academic scholarships for Year 7 and 9 entry are awarded based on the results of the entrance examination. Minor awards are made for exceptional performance in one area of the examination.

A music scholarship, based on performance and interview, is also available. The audition is an opportunity to showcase the candidate’s musical and technical abilities on either one or two instruments and complete appropriate aural tests.

Grade 3 standard on at least one instrument is expected from successful applicants, although at this stage musicality, potential and enthusiasm are considered to be as important as technical ability.

An Art Scholarship will be made to a pupil showing enthusiasm, outstanding artistic ability and potential which can be developed throughout his or her school life.  The Art Scholarship assessment will be carried out by the School’s Art Department and will consist of a portfolio, practical and interview.

A drama scholarship may be awarded to a candidate who shows a genuine love and enthusiastic dedication to drama, with real potential to develop excellent performance skills, and a desire to communicate with others in creating a range of high quality performance work. The assessment takes the form of an audition and interview with the Head of Drama.

A sports scholarship may be awarded to a pupil who shows high levels of enthusiasm and outstanding sporting ability and potential, which we can nurture and develop through his or her school life.  The Sports Scholarship assessment will be carried out by the school’s PE department and will consist of practical activities and workshops, as well as a one-to-one discussion about the candidate’s sporting portfolio.
