Year 11 pupil, Kiyyah G, has been offered a netball scholarship at a school in Worcestershire after she leaves us this year.
Sports scholarships are offered at 13+ and 16+ and assessment days are held prior to pupils sitting entrance examinations. Talented sportsmen and women are invited to apply to attend assessment days but all candidates are required to meet the necessary academic standard for entry to the school. There is much competition for scholarship places and interviews are competitive! Kiyyah successfully passed a one to one interview and is on track to achieve the required GCSE results required to gain a place.
Kiyyah is an extremely talented netball player and her sports ‘idol’ is Serena Williams, tennis star.
She told us:
I am very excited but nervous at the same time. It’s a really large campus and I won’t know anyone but it’s an amazing opportunity.
We wish Kiyyah all the best for her next chapter, well done!
