TALENTED students in music, sport, drama and academics are urged to apply for a scholarship at Bromsgrove School.
The scheme enable students to grow and develop into the Bromsgrovians of the future.
Scholarships are available in academic, music and art for those 11 and over and, for those aged 16 and up, academic, music, drama, art and sport.
Although the financial award of scholarships is small, Bromsgrove pupils are exceptionally proud to be offered a scholarship as it carries much gravitas within the community.
The school also offers a significant number of bursaries for entry into year seven, nine and 12 which can be used in conjunction with scholarships.
The means-tested bursaries are available to enable talented girls and boys, who might not have previously been able to consider an independent education, the chance to do so.
