Beaconhurst can help athletic pupils flourish
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.”
