Academic Scholarships

Pupils of outstanding ability in one or more subjects are encouraged to apply to be an Academic Scholar. 

We are happy to consider individuals who are capable of excellence in a certain area, as well as those who excel across a number of subjects. 

We welcome candidates from other schools or Colleges to apply to Worksop College House for Yr 7 or for Sixth Form. We have a dedicated Sixth Form Centre and impressive results at A-level. In 2019  100% of pupils passed their A levels and over 50% achieved a place at a Russell Group university.

How do we assess Academic Scholars?

If you are successful in your application, you will be invited to an Assessment Day. Read on for what to expect 

Academic Assessment Days 

  • Junior (Yr 7 and Yr 9 entry) - 26 January 2021 
  • Senior (Yr 12 entry) - 27 January 2021

Entrants will take part in a range of tests that are designed to determine academic ability across a range of subjects, as well as problem-solving skills. Some of these are written tests and others are computer-based.

Year 12 entrants will also take part in a group exercise where they will debate a subject together. This is designed for us to understand ability to reason and conclude, effectively. 

To request an application form, please get in touch with the Admissions Team by emailing or call 01909 537100.
