Notice of Year 3 Academic Scholarships for Sept 2018
We are delighted  to announce our annual scholarship programme which this year sees us offering a limited number of academic scholarships to children who are currently in Year 2 and born between 01.09.10 and 31.08.11.
The scholarships will last for 4 years through Key Stage 2 and will cover 40% of the school fees.
In the past three years 98% of our Year 6 pupils have moved onto their first choice of secondary school. Of these 15% received academic scholarships, being some of the top academic achievers in the Cheshire area. We have strong and  active links with over 28 secondary schools; including all the leading independent schools, grammar schools, maintained schools and academies. The Firs prides itself on achieving excellence for all our pupils, ensuring a smooth transition to the secondary school that is right for each individual.
Scholarship assessments will take place on Thursday 1st March between 9:00 and 11:30 am. Parents and children will be shown around the school at 9am and then the children will stay on to do a series of assessments including reading, writing, non-verbal reasoning, maths and a short interview.
If you are interested in your child applying for the scholarships, or have further questions, then please register by emailing;
It is advised to register early as there are limited places for our assessment day.
