University scholarships and bursaries for our sixth formers
With university tuition fees at £9250 a year, many graduates leave university with a significant student loan to pay back once they start work. One of the least –known advantages of studying at Hatcham College is the generous long-term financial support given by the Haberdashers’ Company to hardworking Askeans once they set off to university.
Among the scholarships and bursaries awarded are: AkzoNobel Science scholarships of £2000 a year every year while studying, University Arts bursaries of £1000 a year for up to 4 years, Cochrane Scholarships of £1000 a year for up to 5 years, the Jeston Scholarship of £1000 each year, and Centenary Awards of £1000.
Access to these scholarships and bursaries is unique to our sixth form in this part of London and reflects the unique advantage of studying with us, whether you are already an Askean or you are thinking of joining us from another school.
At our Speech Day on Wednesday 27th June, the following Year 13 leavers were among those who received generous scholarships and bursaries: Rahim, Massi, Roqibat, Gloria, Rebecca, John, Kimberly, Ayo, Megan, Naomi, Amber and Olivia. Well done to them! Overall, 50 awards and prizes were awarded just to Year 13, from the Haberdashers’ sponsorship listed above, and special prizes such as the Harvard Book Prize and Husnu Award, to subject prizes such as the Treloar Prize for Physics and the Norris Prize for Maths.
We look forward to welcoming you to our sixth form and the unique advantages it offers.
