Hurtwood House is offering a limited number of two-year A-level Performing Arts scholarships in September 2023, one at 50% off the fees, two at 25% off the fees and three at 10% off the fees. The major scholarships are awarded to students auditioning in all three of the disciplines - acting, singing and dance.
Clearly, we are not expecting students of this age to have received a great deal of formal vocational training, but we are looking for evidence of outstanding talent and natural skills. We are looking for young people with enthusiasm and commitment who would make a positive contribution to the Hurtwood Theatre during their time here.
Scholarships are awarded for the full two-year period of the student's A-levels, but will be subject to review at the end of the first year. Although successful candidates will not be expected to take A-level Theatre Studies as part of their A-level programme, they will nevertheless be expected to take a full and active part in the extra-curricular Performing Arts programme, and to contribute to all major school productions.
Before auditioning for one of these scholarships, it is necessary for students to come for an interview, so if you decide you would like to apply for a scholarship and have not already visited the school you should contact the school secretary to arrange an appointment. Once you have had your interview, you may complete the scholarship application form and return it to us so that we can enter your name onto the list of candidates for the next audition. Please note that a reference from your present school will also be required, and this will be written for on receipt of your completed application form.
