the area of academic work and for others, their ability lies in Art,

Sixth Form Scholarships
A number of Sixth form Scholarships are awarded to students from
Langley School and from elsewhere, based on their achievement at GCSE.A
student who passes all his/her subjects with Grade A* would clearly be
in line for a major award (up to 50% of day fees) but there are
opportunities to recognise the achievement of others if top grades match
chosen ‘A’level subjects.This is particularly true where the student is
gifted in Art, Drama, Music, Sport or Technology.
Tenure of Awards
Students granted a scholarship award are required to continue their
education until the end of Year 13, unless the School deter mines in its
sole discretion that their academic profile excludes them from doing
so. Continuity of the award is subject to sustained satisfactory
performance and the school reserves the right to reduce or terminate the
award on giving a term’s notice.
