Performing Arts Scholarships (Drama)
Performing Arts Scholarships can be worth up to a maximum of 20% of school fees.
All candidates for a Peforming Arts scholarship will be expected to have a satisfactory level of academic ability and a satisfactory reference and school report. In addition to this there will be a practical assessment.
All Performing Arts scholars are expected to make a significant contribution to the broad musical, dramatic or dance life of the School, including continued instrumental learning, supporting rehearsals as reasonably requested by the Director of Performing Arts, and performing in the School's events.
Candidates should prepare two contrasting monologues that give them the opportunity to show a range of emotion. Each piece should be of no more than three minutes in length.
Candidates will have an interview with the Director of Performing Arts and will have an opportunity to talk about any relevant experience they have and what they would like to achieve in this area.
All candidates will also have a short interview with the Headmaster or another senior member of staff and will require a good reference from the candidate's current school.
The assessment for all music and drama awards will last approximately one hour.
