It's in... Schools
Talented youngsters are invited to apply for Scholarships at Beaconhurst School as part of a new and unique scheme.
The independent school is looking for gifted pupils who would benefit from the chance to combine a first-class education with the flexibility to pursue their particular talent - whether that lies in sport, art or elsewhere.
The programme begins in early 2013 when students will be given the opportunity to visit the Bridge of Allan school and take part in assessments during the week of January 21-25.
A number of Scholarship places will be available to pupils at entry levels into S1, S3 and S5 and they fall into four categories - Academic, Sport, Art and All Rounder.
Headteacher John Owen is looking for pupils who stand out in the fields of sport, art or academia as well as those who can be described as "all-rounders" - those who possess a variety of talents eg music or drama and yet are academically able.
He says: "It's about rewarding potential and I am looking for students who would benefit from an independent education and who in turn will benefit our school community."
Beaconhurst School caters for boys and girls aged from 3 -18 and has a roll of 400 pupils.
Pupils from all over Scotland, as well as existing students, can apply for a Scholarship which could cut school fees by up to 50%. Means-tested bursaries are also available.
