Following recent outstanding GCSE results, the governors of girls’ day school Westfield School have decided to award 10 new scholarships.
Scholarships are currently awarded to pupils entering year seven and sixth form but now girls entering years five, six and nine in September 2016 will also be eligible for up to 20% off the termly fee.
The scholarships are designed to recognise a girl’s achievements or her potential and are open to pupils wishing to join Westfield School from either the independent or state sector.
Headmistress of Westfield School, Catherine Jawaheer, said: “We are so proud of the achievements of all our girls. We felt inspired to offer other girls throughout the North East the opportunity to share in the Westfield experience.”
To be considered for a scholarship, all candidates must attend a taster day, sit examination papers and attend an interview.
Scholarships will last throughout the holder’s school career and are regularly reviewed by the Headmistress regarding the pupil’s diligence, progress, attitude and good conduct.
