Record Number of Scholarships Awarded 2019
It is always a bitter-sweet moment when our Year 8 leavers file out of the marquee at the end of Speech Day on the last day of term. Every year we say farewell to a group of students, many of whom have been at St Faith’s since starting their education in Foundation nine years ago. The all-round successes of the whole year group are always impressive. This year, as well as over 90% of leavers gaining places at their first choice senior school, our pupils have received an unprecedented 36 scholarship offers from schools including The Perse, Harrow, The Leys, King’s Ely, St Mary’s and the Stephen Perse Foundation. Scholarships offered include Academic, Drama, Music, Art and Sport. In the recent past our leavers have received an average of 28 offers, so this year’s haul is all the more notable.
Commenting on these hugely impressive results, Headmaster, Mr Nigel Helliwell stated, ‘We are so proud of the achievements of all our leavers. Their dedication, hard work and talent have been justifiably recognised and rewarded by their future schools. My sincere congratulations to all 66 Year 8 pupils and their teachers.’
