Application for Music Scholarship

Auditions will take place on Thursday 19 and Friday 20 January 2023.  Applications must be completed online by 12:00 on Thursday 12 January 2023.

  • Should I Apply?

    Music scholarships are awarded to musicians showing exceptional promise, commitment, and ambition on one or more instruments, or voice. Scholarships are awarded for entry into Year 7, Year 9 or Year 12 and provide the framework for a comprehensive partnership between the pupil and School. Music Scholarships will be tenable for the duration of a pupil’s time at Loughborough High School and are subject to annual review. There are many benefits to being a scholar. You would have bespoke support offered to help you along your musical journey, as well as carrying the status of being a ‘Music Scholar.’ 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 school journey to ensure they become the best musicians that they can be. Competition for scholarships is very fierce and they are strictly limited in number. Music scholarships do not normally carry with them any financial recompense. Means-tested financial support can be applied for through our Music Tuition Assistance scheme in order to fund individual music lessons; both scholars and non-scholars are eligible to apply for this funding.
  • What will the audition involve?

    Although we are looking for pupils who play at a good standard for their age, we do also take into account what the instrument is, and musical potential. Once your application is accepted you may then be invited to attend a scholarship audition on Thursday 19 or Friday 20 January 2023. In the audition you will be required to perform a piece or song that really shows off your abilities on each of your instrument(s) or voice, and an unaccompanied song if singing isn’t offered. You will also be asked to complete a short piece of sight reading and have a discussion about musical interests and experience with the Director of Music.
  • When is the closing date?

    Closing date is Thursday 12 January 2023. Audition dates will be Thursday 19 and Friday 20 January 2023.
