North Yorkshire netballer and swimmer Coco Charters won a sports scholarship to The Mount
The Mount also awarded a music scholarship to pianist, clarinettist and Captain of Choir Amy Foster, and a vocal scholarship to Maddy Green.
Terrington Hall School headmaster Stephen Mulryne said: ‘I am thrilled with the range of scholarships won by our Year Eight pupils across academia, music and sport.
‘Notable also, however, is the range of senior schools to which our leavers have won places, highlighting Terrington Hall’s strength as the only standalone co-educational barding preparatory school in North Yorkshire.
‘Having no ties to a senior school means that we gear our efforts to preparing pupils for entrance to the senior school of their choice, whether that is day, boarding, local or further afield. It is something we’re good at, and it’s a strong factor in why parents choose us.
‘In the last five years, pupils have been offered places at schools including Ampleforth, Bootham, Durham, Fettes, Genalmond, Oundle, Queen Margaret’s, Queen Mary’s, Millfield, Moira House, Repton, Rugby, St Peter’s York, Sedbergh, Shiplake College, The Mount, Uppingham and Woodhouse Grove.’
