Sixth Form Art Scholarship

Art scholarships are available to artistically talented pupils entering the school’s Sixth Form from internal or external applicants.

Background to Art Scholarships

The Head and the Governors of Wakefield Girls’ High School are offering Art Scholarships for up to two pupils both available to internal and external candidates who will be entering our Sixth Form in September. Each scholarship will be worth £1000 per annum for the duration of the scholar’s Sixth Form career. The successful candidate(s) will have a strong and diverse portfolio of work that demonstrates a commitment to the subject through outside visits and independent working and critical investigation. A multidisciplinary approach to the creative process would be extremely advantageous.

How to Apply

Letters of application, detailing reasons why candidates consider themselves suitable and of no more than 300 words should be sent to Mrs K Varley, Head of Art at WGHS. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to bring their portfolio of work and or sketchbooks to interview for a discussion regarding their practical work and inspirations. Candidates should take good quality photographs of any large scale work, 3D pieces and textiles garments that are unsuitable to bring to interview.
