Scholarships are awarded for exceptional candidates showing significant potential in at least one of Stowe’s key sports: rugby, hockey or cricket for boys and hockey, lacrosse, netball or tennis for girls. Each candidate must offer one or two of our key sports they are considered to be a specialist in. Assessment will take the form of two days at Stowe and will include assessments in several sports and an interview. For those not taking Common Entrance, entry papers in English, Maths and Science will be taken in January 2021.
Candidates must also email a CV to email@example.com and the Sport Summary Form with this Application Form.
This should include:
• The level at which their offered sport is being played
• Details of achievements, honours, captaincy, tours undertaken etc.
• Sporting aspirations
• A statement on why they feel they should be awarded a Sports Scholarship
References must be provided from two people who have coached the candidate.
Please enclose a forthcoming fixture list for the key sport if possible. A member of staff from our Sports Department may wish to attend one of the fixtures if it can be accommodated within their timetable.
In addition to strong academic potential which will be demonstrated by tests in English, Maths and Science taken during the assessment day, it is expected that candidates will display excellence in at least one of the following: sport, music, art or drama. This will be assessed through practical sessions and by interview at Stowe, when candidates will also undertake a series of command tasks or leadership challenges. For those sitting Common Entrance, a strong pass (in the region of 70%) will also be expected at CE. For those not taking CE, the academic tests taken on the day will also serve as entry papers and the candidate is expected to average 70% in these papers.
Candidates are also required to submit a personal portfolio - this should be more than a CV. It should include the candidate’s interests and achievements. Testimonials or references should be shown and relevant photographs may be included. Candidates should submit their portfolio by 22 January 2021.
Please indicate in which areas your child would like to be assessed. Please note all candidates will undertake the leadership challenge.
