St. Martin’s Ampleforth Year 8 pupils are celebrating a bumper crop of scholarship successes to senior schools. Thirteen of our Year 8 pupils have been awarded scholarships, twelve to Ampleforth College and one to Malvern College. Of the twelve scholarships awarded to Ampleforth College, four were Academic scholarships, three were awarded for music and seven gained Basil Hume Scholarships for excellence in music, drama and sport.
On top of this one pupil also secured an academic scholarship to Malvern College in Worcestershire.
Headmaster, Mr. Nicholas Higham said:
for so many scholarships to be awarded is a glowing tribute to the commiment and ability of our Year 8 pupils and to the staff who prepared them.
