Tilsley Sixth Form Scholarship

Tilsley Sixth Form Scholarship featured image

We are delighted to announce a new scholarship for a Sixth Former wishing to attend Loughborough Amherst School in September 2023 who has a strong musical and / or academic ability.  The scholarship is funded by a generous donation from an Our Lady’s Convent School alumna and, with additional School Assisted Place funding from Loughborough Amherst School, could cover up to 100% of school fees.


In addition to a household income of £40,000 or less (or significant financial need) the scholarship applicant should be able to demonstrate through school reports, predicted GCSE grades, and co-curricular endeavours that they would thrive at Loughborough Amherst School and embrace all the opportunities open to them. Although not a requirement of the award a musical background could be advantageous.

What We’re Looking For

The Tilsley Sixth Form Scholarship is available to pupils who show great potential and the ability to thrive at Loughborough Amherst School. We welcome applications from pupils with strong academic and/or musical backgrounds, who would make the most from a place in Loughborough Amherst’s Sixth Form and the extraordinary musical opportunities on offer at the Loughborough Schools Foundation. As a guide, and in consideration of a pupil focusing on music as a pathway, the award holder will be roughly Grade 7 level and above, for those pupils without music as a pathway a strong academic profile would also be considered.

If you would like to find out more about a Scholarship that could award up to 100% off school fees at Loughborough Amherst School please contact the LAS Admissions Registrar Katie Newman by telephoning 01509 638280 or by email on
