  • All Rounder
    This award is offered to candidates who feel comfortable in two or more of the above disciplines. Please specify on the application form.

Scholarships for sport, netball, rugby 7's, music, drama, art, piping, drumming and 'all-rounder' will be assessed following the academic papers set.  Interviews will take place during the pupil's day visit at the school. 

It is hoped that all children will enjoy the assessment experience and should approach the afternoon with this in mind.  We are looking for those who show aptitude and potential and enjoy their extra curricular pursuits.

Additional references are always encouraged when applying for a Scholarship, (from choirmaster, sports coach etc).

Awards can be worth up to 100% reduction on the tuition element of the school fee.  Parents may apply for further financial assistance in addition to a Scholarship.  Scholarships will remain with a pupil throughout their time at Lathallan, provided the given criteria are continually met (music scholars, for example, will be expected to maintain tuition and perform in school concerts).  This will be re-assessed annually.

Bursaries/Financial Assistance

Lathallan's ethos is centered on being inclusive. We wish to offer our brand of education to as many children as possible. To this end, we have a number of assisted places available to families who may not be able to meet the full fee requirement. These assisted places range in value up to 100% and can be offered from Junior 1 (P1) through to S6.  For a Bursary Form please contact admissions@lathallan.org.uk
