All students in receipt of a scholarship award are expected to assist at major events such as open mornings and represent the school in areas related to their scholarship awards, such as competitions.
External candidates applying for a scholarship must be registered for a place at Thornton College and a reference will be requested by our admissions team from the candidate’s present school.
There are two parts to the scholarship application at Thornton.
Part one involves a morning of assessments. These will be either the CATS, MidYis or Yellis tests, depending on which year group your daughter is applying for. If successful, she will be invited for part two which involves a full day at Thornton where she will experience a day in her year group followed by an audition, depending on her chosen category. For full details, please click on the categories below.
Scholarships are awarded on the clear understanding that the recipient will complete her education at Thornton to the end of Key Stage 4 (GCSE). The discount on fees under a scholarship must be reimbursed if a scholar is withdrawn before the end of Year 11 / Year 13. Students in receipt of a scholarship at Year 7 or Year 9 will need to re-apply for a scholarship at Sixth Form entry.
