Sport Scholarships will be awarded to individuals who will bring excellence and dedication to St Paul’s Cathedral School through sport and their contribution to the overall community.
Candidates will be expected to show exceptional promise in either one sport or all round ability in two or three sports at club or county level. Sports on offer at St Paul’s Cathedral School are Football, Hockey, Cricket, Netball, Athletics, and Tennis, but other exceptional sporting talents will be considered.
All sports scholarship holders are expected to be fully committed and make a positive contribution to the annual sporting programme at St. Paul’s Cathedral School and will be supported by the Head of PE and Games in becoming role models at the school.
Assessment will include reports and references from their current school, tests in English and Maths, plus Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning. Candidates would be expected to show proof of sporting credentials e.g. medals and certificates, national rankings, newspaper reports, academy acceptance letters etc.
Candidates will be invited to a practical assessment day where they will be required to complete a series fitness tests and perform in their chosen sport.
References from coaches and other sporting professionals can also be presented in support of the application.
While the offer of a Sport’s Scholarship is not a guarantee of a future scholarship to a senior school at 13+, the ambition to do so is encouraged.
