Scholars are mentored by a teacher in the relevant subject area and will be appraised against termly targets in their scholarship area. There is an award of £250 per term. Scholars will be expected to make a committed contribution to the school’s co-curricular activities in their scholarship discipline and to act as ambassadors for the school where appropriate.
