Scholarship Schemes

 

  • MEANS TESTED

This RTC Scholarship Scheme is designed to help some of the most disadvantaged children in the local community. Working with local schools, which have been categorised as needing improvement in their Ofsted reports, we aim to support two children each year by giving them a place on our Year Four or Five course (depending on academic ability) for one academic year, which prepares children for the major transition into secondary school.

This is a fantastic opportunity for children who would benefit from working in a small group, led by the same teacher each week. We recommend this scholarship for any child who shows great signs of intelligence, but lacks the academic foundations or confidence and who may find too many distractions within their current setting.

The students who pay for classes at our centre are not tested before they join and so have varying abilities. However, a large percentage end up achieving scores which place them in the top 25 per cent of the country by the time they transition into secondary school, most of them grammar.  Our schools are not highly pressurised environments, we simply have the advantage of small groups (no bigger than 10) and consistent teaching staff, along with meticulous marking methods and excellent parental communication.

If the parent and child, accepted onto this scheme, are interested in taking the 11 plus, we will also pay for them to sit the Easter mock exam, in order to prepare them emotionally for the experience, as well as making sure they have all the necessary skills.

The total cost of this place would be £880 – £1160 but with the RTC Scholarship, it is 100% free!

We will be contacting schools in the local area, but if this is of interest to you, do ask your school to get in touch with us.

  • ACADEMIC 

This RTC Academic Scholarship Scheme is designed to help two of the most academically capable children in the local community. We assess children who attend our Year 4 into Year Five exam and offer the highest achieving students a 30% discount on our Year 5 course and Easter mock exam.

This is a fantastic opportunity for parents of bright and motivated children. It is our way of rewarding those parents, who make great efforts to support their child’s learning, enabling them to meet their full potential and recognising the importance of challenging the mind. In our small group settings, it is so important to encourage high achieving children to work to their full potential, and they, too, have a great role in helping to bring up the ambitions of the whole group.

The students who pay full price for classes at our centre are not tested before they join and so have varying abilities. However, a large percentage end up achieving scores which place them in the top 25 per cent of the country by the time they transition into secondary school, most of them grammar. Our schools are not highly pressurised environments, we simply have the advantage of small groups (no bigger than 10) and consistent teaching staff, along with meticulous marking methods and excellent parental communication.

If the parent and child, accepted onto this scheme, are interested in taking the 11 plus, we will give them a 30% discount on our Easter mock exam in order to prepare them emotionally for the experience, as well as making sure they have all the necessary skills.

The total cost of this place would be £880 + £85 mock, but with the RTC Academic Scholarship discount, it would be just £616 + £59.50 = £675.50

If this is of interest to you, please get in touch to book the Year Four into Year Five assessment.

Sponsorships

We are proud sponsors of the Anchorians Under 10 Girls’ football team (The Hearts). We believe that it is important to support children in honing their skills, no matter what the craft. Playing a team sport is not easy, developing any skill, is not easy and we must all remember that if we want to succeed in anything, practice makes perfect!
