WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WHEN YOU APPLY:
Applications are only accepted online from 1 December – 28 February annually. Application is based on the child’s Grade 6 results.
The Thomas More College (High School) Scholarship Programme is designed to retain and attract exceptionally talented pupils and gives recognition to those who have excelled beyond the limits of everyday academic and sporting expectations.
These scholarships are strictly based on merit and should not be confused with a Bursary Programme that is purely focused on providing financial assistance. Pupils with a track record of exceptional academic performance and potential, who also involve themselves in a range of activities beyond the confines of academics, are typically short-listed for interviews, once the application process closes. Submitting an application does NOT guarantee an interview. Similarly, an interview does not guarantee a scholarship.
Scholarships starting from 20% up to no more than 75% of the annual school charges may be offered to successful applicants.
The scholarships are generally awarded to incoming Grade 8 pupils during their Grade 7 year, but in exceptional cases and depending on the availability of funds as well as the calibre of the candidates, an award may be offered to a pupil in their Grade 6 Year for when he / she is in Grade 8. Candidates may potentially be offered a scholarship in grades higher than Grade 8.
Thomas More College awards two types of Scholarships:
In determining the extent of the scholarship, consideration will be given to the following:
Scholarships will in all circumstances be limited to the budgeted funds allocated and approved by the Board of Trustees and will be sourced from funds outside of school charges.
