Working with partner schools, we encourage disadvantaged students to apply for the scholarship programme, using the following criteria:

Free School Meals

Pupils in state schools in receipt of free school meals. This is one of the most well-established definers of poverty. 



Candidates are interviewed, but not selected on narrow academic criteria. We look at GCSE results, plus commitment and academic interest demonstrated in the interview, application form and the school's feedback.


Partnering with a growing number of schools
