Inclusive Foundation Educational Scholarship
To apply to the Inclusive Foundation Education Scholarship, applicants will be evaluated by the Inclusive Foundation Board of Directors and chosen based on the applicants area of talent. An Inclusive Foundation Scholarship is not just about celebrating and nurturing excellence, it’s about sharing it. Our scholarship students are given the opportunity to engage in tailored enrichment activities and extra support in their chosen area of talent. They are supported by staff who are experts in their field, and encouraged to challenge themselves to achieve at the very highest level. But it doesn’t end there. Scholarship students also act as ambassadors within the school, sharing their enthusiasm and encouraging fellow students to take an active interest in their subject area.
Scholarships at howard academy
New pupils have the opportunity to apply for the Inclusive Foundation Educational Scholarship, which is worth between 25% up to 100% off tuition fees on the basis of evidence of exceptional recent achievement, performance in the scholarship assessment and an interview with a scholarship panel at the stages outlined below.
There are three categories of scholarship:
Academic: the student displays a high aptitude for learning and a genuine interest to stay curious.
Talent: Art, Sports, Music.
All-rounder: where a student demonstrates significant intellectual potential as well as providing evidence of exceptional talent in a particular discipline.
Academic scholars at Howard Academy will demonstrate exceptional intellectual potential. They are expected to provide a positive role model for fellow students and maintain excellent standards of academic progress and conduct at all times. They will be academically stretched by their teachers and will benefit from attendance at guest speaker events. They will contribute positively and significantly to the academic life of the school.
Art scholars will be selected on the basis of a portfolio of work which demonstrates their talent – there is no restriction as to where this talent might lie, whether it is photography, digital art, fine art, drawing, painting, printmaking, or three dimensional work in ceramics or other media. They will be expected to have a good knowledge of artists and be able to articulate how they’ve been inspired by the work of others. Art scholars will be mentored and encouraged by specialist staff to develop their passion for art and be given opportunities to display and curate their work around the school. They will be expected to take advantage of the many extra-curricular arts activities and spend lots of time in the department, collaborating and inspiring others.
Sports scholars will represent the School and be ambassadors of the School’s sporting values in their chosen field. They are offered a strength and conditioning program, dedicated access to Howard Academy gym and privileged access to the sporting facilities at Power Club. They will be allocated a mentor and offered one to one coaching and support to prepare them for competition. Sports scholars will undertake a leadership role within their chosen sport to inspire others and to be a peer mentor to a fellow student.
Music scholars will be expected to take a minimum of one hour instrumental/vocal lessons per week. Music scholars will then be eligible for a complementary 30-minute instrumental/vocal lesson per week. They will have the opportunity of belonging to a musical group, leading a musical ensemble and attending external concerts. Music scholars will be expected to take part in at least two musical ensembles, play in music assembly once a term and perform at the annual Scholars’ Concert.
All scholars will be mentored by members of our dedicated team and invited to regular scholars’ teas where they will be encouraged to consider how they have contributed to sharing their passion and talent with their peers.

The Scholarship Policy and application form are available below.
Bursaries take the form of means tested discounts for new (and sometimes existing) students. These are intended to help a child enter the School and the majority will continue for the duration of their time at Howard Academy. Others offer short-term support and may be available in cases of unexpected financial hardship.
The bursary funds are limited so it is not always possible to meet all the requests for support. Bursaries are reviewed annually and are awarded in line with our Bursary Policy and Procedure. The Bursary Policy and Procedure document and application form are available to download below.
Applications for Scholarships and Bursaries funds for the 2019 school year must be made by Monday July 16 2018.
