A number of honorary Scholarships are offered. These have no financial value, but confer considerable prestige: there is a Scholars’ society with bespoke extension activities, a Scholars’ tie, and recipients receive one-to-one academic mentoring to ensure they are being suitably stretched. Scholarships are awarded on academic merit and are dependent upon examination performance. There is no need to make separate applications to be considered for these awards.
Music Scholarships are available at 11+ (Year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12). We welcome applications from both internal and external candidates; an offer of a Scholarship is conditional on gaining entry to one of the Schools in the Loughborough Schools Foundation.
Music Scholarships are available by audition in January to exceptional practical musicians, whether instrumentalists or vocalists. They provide the framework for a comprehensive partnership between the pupil and the Music department. Music Scholarships will be tenable for the duration of a pupil’s time at the Loughborough Schools Foundation, subject to annual review, and comprise individually tailored support with performance practice, music theory and aural skills, unrivalled ensemble experience and full access to the Enhanced Music Programme. Scholars must be enthusiastic and able musicians, who can demonstrate their passion for the subject as well as their technical skill. They will be mentored throughout their time at School to ensure they become the best musicians that they can be. Competition for Scholarships is very fierce and they are strictly limited in number.
Scholarship auditions have been completed for this year and dates for 2020 will appear here in October.
