We offer a number of different Gryphon scholarships and students can only hold one, although they may apply for up to two. The award of a scholarship may, like a university offer, be made conditional on the achievement of certain outcomes.
These scholarships provide a grant of up to £1000 for transport or academic resources and reflect the academic ethos of The Gryphon Sixth Form. Offers for this scholarship will be conditional on the achievement of specified GCSE results. There are up to 10 scholarships on offer.
A distinctive feature of The Gryphon is that we are at the heart of our local community. We have a strong student leadership group and are always keen to recruit the next generation of leaders. Students on this programme will get a £500 grant towards going on a community engagement event such as our expedition to Rwanda. There are up to 5 of these scholarships on offer.
For students that excel in Music, Art, Design, Drama or Photography there are up to 3 scholarships judged by an interview and a portfolio or performance. This programme will offer free music lessons, theatre trips, drawing classes or photography workshops depending on the area of expertise.
This programme will offer a £500 travel grant for an immersive experience in another country. Students will be required to study at least one of French, German or Spanish at A level.
