Scholarships and Bursaries
Rishworth School provides an excellent, balanced education for its pupils and seeks positively to offer to as many potential pupils as possible the opportunity of studying at the School.
The Scholarship and Bursary schemes support these aims by encouraging applications from gifted pupils and from pupils who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend Rishworth without financial support. Details of the schemes are set out in this section. All Scholarships and Bursaries are subject to the availability of funds.
Recipients of our Scholarships and Bursaries are expected to behave in an exemplary manner and to act as role models for other pupils. The conditions and obligations that attach to these awards are also set out below.
The Difference between Scholarships and Bursaries
Bursaries seek to support high ability students from lower income families.
Scholarships are awarded in recognition of high academic ability or for excellence in Performing Arts, Creative Arts or Sport.
