Lomond Launch Aca­demic Schol­ar­ship Pro­gramme for 2017 / 2018

The Oban Times - - News -

Lomond School prin­ci­pal Jo­hanna Urquhart is pleased to an­nounce the launch of a new schol­ar­ship pro­gramme for the aca­demic year 2017/18. Aca­demic schol­ar­ships will be awarded to pupils on the ba­sis of com­pet­i­tive ex­am­i­na­tions which will be car­ried out in late Jan­uary 2017 and ap­pli­ca­tions must be made on or be­fore Jan­uary 20, 2017. Like all young peo­ple at­tend­ing Lomond School, Lomond schol­ars will ben­e­fit from the ex­cel­lent sys­tems in place which help pupils to achieve their very best. The con­tin­u­ous sup­port, en­cour­age­ment and guid­ance pro­vided by the school’s ded­i­cated teach­ers and staff team en­sures that pupils ex­celling in their aca­demic stud­ies are nur­tured through­out their time at school. Be­yond the class­room, Lomond pro­vides many op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple to ex­plore their in­ter­ests and tal­ents fur­ther. Lomond School pupils en­joy a very wide va­ri­ety of ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar clubs and sports in­clud­ing hill run­ning, the Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award Scheme, TED Ed, en­gi­neer­ing, the orches­tra and var­i­ous mu­si­cal ar­range­ment groups, rugby, hockey, archery and much more. They also have ac­cess to life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ences such as the re­cent trip trekking in Morocco and the forth­com­ing visit to Tan­za­nia where pupils will work with the Mov­ing Moun­tains Trust to de­velop and im­prove ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties and in­fra­struc­ture in the Ng’aroni com­mu­nity. Prin­ci­pal Urquhart com­ments: ‘Be­yond the help and sup­port our teach­ers and staff pro­vide, the school it­self has a very wel­come en­vi­ron­ment where young peo­ple sup­port each other and cel­e­brate each other’s achieve­ments. In many ways this is the back­bone of much of our pupils’ suc­cess. At a time in their lives when peer ac­cep­tance and ac­knowl­edge­ment is so im­por­tant, the fam­ily feel Lomond School has is gen­uine and pupils re­ally want to see each other suc­ceed.’ Lomond schol­ars will also ben­e­fit from the close re­la­tion­ship the school has with its for­mer pupils through the Lomond School As­so­ci­a­tion. For ex­am­ple: ‘Olympic sailor Char­lotte Dob­son and sail­ing cham­pi­ons Anna Bur­net and Lorenzo Chi­avarini are Lomond School sail­ing pa­trons and re­turn to the school to sup­port and in­spire our young peo­ple.’ The schol­ar­ship pro­gramme is open to all se­nior one en­trants for 2017. Schol­ars will typ­i­cally re­ceive a small re­duc­tion in fees and our bur­sary award scheme can be sought to sup­ple­ment this. Bur­saries are means-tested and ap­pli­ca­tions must be made via our regis­trar by Jan­uary 20, 2017. More in­for­ma­tion on schol­ar­ships, bur­saries and gen­eral ap­pli­ca­tions is avail­able from the school regis­trar via ad­mis­sions@lomond­school.com or on 01436 672476. Test­ing for schol­ar­ships takes place in Fe­bru­ary 2017.
