Following the successful launch last year, Knighton House School is launching a new 100% scholarship and other discounted awards for local girls for the second year. The Booker Scholarships – named after the school’s founders John and Peggy Booker – will give local girls the benefits of a Knighton House education throughout their prep school years.
Knighton House is looking to offer these new scholarships to girls showing potential either academically, in music, sport, riding or in art. Talented all-rounders will also be considered.
The 100% Scholarship award is fully funded and will be awarded to a girl between Years 3 and 8 and will cover the entirety of their Knighton House fees. Additional discounted awards will be available to local girls.
Knighton House’s mission is to be a leader in the education of girls. We believe that the first experience of education is the critical opportunity to inculcate the attitudes and skills that help children realise their potential. Our new bespoke KED curriculum (Knowledge, Enlightenment and Discovery) is designed to teach skills, build confidence and instil a lifelong love of learning. The aim is to prepare girls and young women to succeed in the 21st century. Knighton girls go on to a range of senior schools including the best private, grammar and state maintained schools. Every year girls secure scholarships to their next schools.
The confidence girls gain at Knighton enables them to thrive at their secondary schools and beyond — and sets them on the path of achievement and success. Old Knightonians go on to achieve distinction in all walks of life. These scholarships will be awarded after interviews and assessments with Knighton House teachers and final decisions will be based on a child’s potential and motivation.
Robin Gainher, Headmaster commented: “Knighton House is about the very best educational outcomes and life skills for girls. These awards are true to Knighton’s charitable mission and are a great way to broaden our contribution and reach to the local community. All of the girls who were given awards last year have already contributed so much to the school, we’re absolutely delighted with how well they have settled in and made such a positive impact already”
Closing date for applications is Monday 24th February, 2020. To find out more and to register your interest for your daughter(s) please email our Admissions Registrar, Megan Draga: firstname.lastname@example.org.
