Applications have now opened for a coveted scholarship at St Bees School.

The highly sought after Full Circle scholarship awards one “extraordinary” student 30 per cent off their school fees every year they progress through the school.

In order to qualify for this opportunity, the school is looking for an individual who embodies all that St Bees stands for – with added star quality.

St Bees School prides itself on preparing its students for a global tomorrow and those whose characters are already showing potential in the ten character traits and skills that St Bees focuses on in every aspect of school life.

These are: leadership, communication, critical thinking, teamwork, research skills, creativity and originality, personal organisation, independence, confidence and public speaking skills.

In return, the successful scholar will have access to the school’s fusion curriculum, as well as benefiting from small class sizes, regular one-to-one mentoring sessions with their assigned tutor, teaching staff and the support to go above and beyond their potential.

This year’s Full Circle scholar, Skylah, has just joined the school in Year 7 and is grateful for the opportunity to study at St Bees.

She said: “At first I had no idea about the scholarship, but then my mum told me about it and we decided that I should try for it. When I got the email I was blown away and felt so happy and really grateful because I was up against good competition.”

Applicants are advised to submit their application as soon as they possibly can as the Full Circle scholarship offers the largest fee remission and is, therefore, the most popular.

The closing date for applications is Thursday, September 30.
