A level scholarships at Ashbourne

Ashbourne College holds Drama and Music Scholarship auditions every year. For further information about the scholarships please read below then contact the college if you would like to apply.

Ashbourne is a private fee-paying college. We offer scholarships to highly academically gifted students who would otherwise be unable to afford to take up a place. Please check Ashbourne College fees.

The college offers a limited number of scholarships to students who have the ability to comfortably achieve the top grades. Our A level scholarship fund makes awards each year principally for performing arts places in Music and Drama. We interview all candidates, some of whom may be asked to sit a relevant test or participate in an audition.

Ashbourne also takes into account personal statements, participation in school activities, positions of responsibility, hobbies, interests and achievements outside of school, as well as ambition.

Charli Eglinton was a music scholarship student who achieve three A grades in Music, Film Studies and English Literature. Hear what she says about her experience at Ashbourne and see some of her outstanding, creative work.

Scholarships are usually awarded up to 50 percent of the published fees.

Award winners will still be required to pay examination fees, practical fees and other such incidental fees and expenses associated with their studies at Ashbourne.

Our expectations are high and we believe that A level scholarship winners will fulfil their potential if they adhere to the following:

We have been fortunate to accept exceptional students on scholarship in the past and have been very pleased with their performance. However, we reserve the right to withdraw scholarships at any time if a scholarship student’s:

  1. academic performance is consistently below what we judge is their potential
  2. attendance level does not meet Ashbourne’s requirements
  3. behaviour is detrimental to Ashbourne College, teachers, staff, students and themselves.
