The Fishmongers Faraday award aims to provide a free or subsidised place for a child to join Faraday School (based in Trinity Buoy Wharf) in September 2019. The award will cover up to 100% of the school fees and may also contribute towards after school clubs and the school bus, depending on personal circumstances. It is open to children due to join Year 3 or 4 in September 2019.
Any child currently attending a maintained school is eligible to apply and Faraday School are particularly keen for applicants showing promise in the arts and/or sport to register. Selection will be based on interview and references.
Additionally, candidates will be asked to provide their most recent school report and to attend Faraday School for a day, where they will undertake a range of activities and assessments. No advance preparation is needed for these tests.
Faraday School are seeking candidates who would not otherwise be able to afford an independent education and who would benefit from the school’s offer. Prospective families will therefore need to fill out a comprehensive means testing form so that Faraday can better understand their financial position.
To be considered for an award, candidates are invited to fill in the application form (details below) and forward the relevant section to their school for a reference. Interested families will also need to complete the bursary application form.
Please do contact Faraday School on 020 8965 7374 if you would like to make an appointment to visit the school prior to making an application and/or you have any specific questions.
The deadline for all applications is Friday 18th January 2019.
