Bea­con­hurst can help ath­letic pupils flour­ish

Strathearn Herald - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

Bea­con­hurst is host­ing its very first Sports Schol­ar­ship Re­cruit­ment Day early in 2018 so that tal­ented young ath­letes can ap­ply for a sports schol­ar­ship in golf, triathlon, ten­nis or swim­ming.

Sports schol­ar­ship pupils ben­e­fit from a tai­lored plan which com­bines aca­demic stud­ies with coach­ing on the field.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are be­ing ac­cepted from pupils who will be go­ing into P6-S6 in Au­gust 2018.

Ju­dith Gra­ham, director of sport at Bea­con­hurst School, said: “We want to be proac­tive and find out about tal­ented ath­letes in the area who can ben­e­fit from our sports schol­ar­ship pro­grammes.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for pupils to come along, meet our coach­ing team and hear more about our pro­grammes.

“Pupils will have the chance to show us their tal­ents on the ten­nis courts, at the golf hub or on the ath­let­ics track and we’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to meet­ing some tal­ented ath­letes from across cen­tral Scot­land.

“And go­ing into the fu­ture, there are lots of path­ways our schol­ars take – some are as­pir­ing sports stars who go into pro­fes­sional sport as a ca­reer while oth­ers take a route into coach­ing and com­bine that with high-level com­pe­ti­tion.”

Any­one interested in ap­ply­ing for a schol­ar­ship, which can cut school fees by up to 50 per cent, can con­tact the school for an ap­pli­ca­tion form and in­for­ma­tion pack.

Head­teacher San­dra Ban­ner­man said: “We’re de­lighted to open our doors to look at what sports tal­ent is out there in the wider com­mu­nity and this ini­tia­tive gives us the chance to do that.

“Schol­ar­ship is an ac­knowl­edge­ment of ex­cel­lence and the awards give tal­ented chil­dren an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover and de­velop their sport­ing po­ten­tial along­side an ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tion.”
