École des Roches are offering scholarship opportunities for the academic year 18/19.
Since the establishment of the School by Edmond Demolins in 1899, Ecole des Roches has had as one of its key principles the wish to develop and recognize the full range of its pupils’ diverse talents. It is in this spirit that the School has created a system of merit-based scholarships designed to recognize the particular talents of young candidates, whether these talents be reflected in the classroom, on the sports field, in a concert hall or on the stage, and without reference to their family’s financial means.
Applicants are assessed in particular on their potential to contribute to the School’s academic, sporting and artistic life and, more broadly, to its national and international reputation. A series of tests, interviews and written assessments will take place at the school in Verneuil, except in exceptional circumstances and by agreement with the School.
Beyond the wider selection criteria that each scholarship candidate will be required to fulfil, it is expected that every scholarship holder will embody the values of the School in all aspects of his/her life.
In general, scholarships are awarded on a merit basis to candidates displaying the best balance between academic excellence and sporting or artistic talent.
This scholarship programme is open predominantly, but not exclusively, to French-speaking Middle School and Sixth-Form pupils wishing to join the School from the start of the next academic year. Multiple scholarship awards cannot be made at the same time to individual candidates. An award implies a percentage reduction in fees (both for tuition and boarding) variable according to both the type of scholarship and the level of excellence exhibited by the candidate and ranging from 10 to 75% of fees (or more in exceptional cases).
A personal letter of engagement will be signed by each recipient of an award. All scholarships are reviewed annually and should continue from year to year on the basis that the recipient satisfies all necessary requirements including demonstrating continued commitment and progress in all areas of activity.
In tandem with scholarships awarded to Middle School and Sixth-Form pupils the School also offers a range of awards at primary level. For further information on these awards please contact the Admissions Department.
Candidates currently studying at the School and whose families may be facing financial difficulties are entitled to apply for a bursary.
