Sixth Form Sports' Scholarships

Background to Sports’ Scholarships

The Head and Governors of Wakefield Girls’ High School are offering Sports’ Scholarships for up to two current Year 11 WGHS pupils 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 pupil(s) will have played sport throughout their time at WGHS, be expected to play for school teams in the Sixth Form and must contribute significantly to school sport, preferably in two disciplines. Girls should demonstrate a strong commitment and positive attitude within their team environment and display a high level of skill and ability in their chosen sports.

How to Apply

Applications should be made by letter, with an accompanying 300 word statement outlining their personal interest in sport and listing their current achievements to date, including any representation at club, county, regional or national level.

As a sports’ scholar, they will be expected to take a full and regular part in school sport, representing the School as required and attending all team practices and fixtures. Failure to show the required level of commitment could lead to the withdrawal of the scholarship.

Please note that the closing date for applications, which should be given to Mrs K. Robinson, Director of Physical Education.
