Bryanston's unique academic system allows academically gifted pupils to develop their intellectual profile by challenging themselves in a number of ways: inside the classroom through the curriculum; with their tutor in the weekly one-to-one tutorial; and also through the academic enrichment and co-curricular programmes.
The Richard Hunter all-rounder scholarships are awarded to candidates who possess the talents and also personal qualities necessary to make a significant and ongoing contribution to the busy extra-curricular life at Bryanston.
Art scholarship candidates should have a creative commitment to art, showing a lively interest in the subject and possessing strong observational drawing and recording skills.
Candidates for the computer science scholarship should exhibit three key qualities: firstly, an innate curiosity and inquisitiveness about digital technology and its potential to shape our lives; secondly, a strong technical ability in the subject, including logical thinking, problem solving and programming; thirdly, an enthusiasm for communicating the power of digital technology to their peers.
Design & Technology
D&T scholarship candidates should be able to demonstrate a real interest in design and have impressive graphical and/or technical skills.
A generous number of music scholarships is offered each year for outstanding ability in any orchestral instrument, piano and organ. Candidates are expected to show high levels of engagement, musicianship and musicality.
Bryanston has always had a proud tradition of excellence in the Performance Arts and we are happy to announce a new scholarship opportunity, available to any pupils who show particular talent and enthusiasm in this area.
Sport scholarship candidates should be able to show talent in the school's major team sports (rugby, hockey, rowing, cross country, cricket, tennis and netball) and they will normally have competed at county level or its equivalent in at least one of these. Talent in other sports will also be valued, but only when combined with the above. Sport scholars are automatically enrolled on the Performance Sport Programme (PSP) which involves targeted training for junior scholars and bespoke training plans for sixth form pupils. These plans are tailored entirely towards the pupils' respective sports and sessions are additional to regular sporting activities. In addition to sporting talent, scholars will also be assessed for their leadership skills, resilience, enterprise, motivation and temperament.
