As one of the UK's leading sixth form colleges, Ashbourne has a substantial scholarship fund for A Level Music, and welcomes applications
from students with both the academic qualifications and personal qualities to make a meaningful contribution to college life.
Scholarships are awarded principally for academic or dramatic achievement, and all candidates should expect to sit a written
test or participate in an audition. A history of participation in activities
inside and outside of school is also expected.
