Lathallan School, near Johnshaven, is set to host two Scholarship days on Tuesday, January 20, and Wednesday, January 21.

The school are also hosting an Open Evening on Tuesday, January 20 at 6.30 p.m.

The Scholarships are available for pupils entering S1 and S5 in 2015.

Scholarships for sport, netball, rugby 7’s, music, drama, art, piping, drumming and ‘all-rounder’ will be assessed following the academic papers set. Interviews will take place during the pupil’s day visit at the school.

A school spokesperson said: “It is hoped that all children will enjoy the assessment experience and should approach the days with this in mind. We are looking for those who show aptitude and potential and enjoy their extra curricular pursuits.

“Additional references are always encouraged when applying for a Scholarship, from choirmaster, sports coach etc.”

Awards can be worth up to 100 per cent reduction on the tuition element of the school fee. Parents may apply for further financial assistance in addition to a Scholarship.

Scholarships will remain with a pupil throughout their time at Lathallan, provided the given criteria are continually met. Music scholars, for example, will be expected to maintain tuition and perform in school concerts. This will be re-assessed annually.
