La Retraithe Sixth Form

Scholarship Programme

At La Retraite 6 we want to make sure our students have access to opportunities that enrich their already outstanding education.

One way we do this is through our Scholarship Programme, which seeks to extend the chance for our students to broaden horizons, develop new interests and extend their skillsets.

In addition to the activities outlined below, students can access a programme of events, workshops, conferences, and trips, including visits to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, subject-specific conferences, in-house guest speakers, skills and employability workshops, and careers showcases.

Our sixth formers have access to 3 different programmes – Academic, Technical and Sports, to supplement studies so that you are strongly positioned to apply successfully to universities, apprenticeships, or jobs.

Academic Scholarship

There are two awards available – Platinum and Gold – which provide up to £500 or £300 respectively towards your study resources and preparations for university.

Alongside a financial bursary, our Academic Scholars receive invitations to collaborate with students at other prestigious local schools, like Westminster and St Paul’s. Participants will also have bespoke experiences at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities and access to a range of initiatives across the curriculum, including Medicine, Law, and other academic pathways.

Students on the programme will be giving extensive guidance in applying to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. Students will also be invited to complete the Extended Project Qualification, which is a universally recognised qualification.

Sports Scholarship

Students on the Sports Scholarship will participate in a nationally recognised coaching qualification and will receive a free La Retraite sports uniform which they can wear on the days they have sports lessons.

Technical Scholarship

30 extraordinary students, studying one of our many new T Level subjects, will benefit from a 45-day work placement towards the end of Year 12 at a prestigious City form or other relevant employer. Our huge range of partners offers a wide choice for them.

If successful, you will receive free transport and a lunch allowance during your placement. This provides a unique opportunity to experience the workplace and enhance your applications. Additionally, Technical Level Scholarship students receive the La Retraite business suit for free.
