Scholarship Programme

For more information on Scholarships please click here

The School's Sports Scholarship Award aims to foster the development of the Scholar's athletic potential through a programme designed specifically for the individual to support and monitor preparation, progression and performance, during their time at Dean Close.

The programme is designed to increase knowledge and understanding in:

  • Nutrition
  • Postural assessment
  • Injury prevention
  • Skill acquisition
  • Lifestyle management
  • Performance and planning management
  • Performance profile management

Each of these aspects is undertaken under the guidance of one of the two personal trainers that all Sports Scholars have continual access to.

Each term the Scholar is monitored via a termly review. Elements reviewed include fitness, training, performance, contribution to School sport, athlete education progress and academic studies.

The Sport Scholarship Programme has been designed to support each Scholar through all aspects of School life. Communication is central to the success of the Programme and the Scholar, parents, teachers and coaches are all invited to communicate with the Scholarship team so we may provide the best support for the athlete.
