Woodlands School selects 10% or 30 students on a Music or Sports scholarship each year.
Any pupil who has an aptitude for Sport or Performing Arts is able to apply. Parents/carers wanting to apply for a place for their child must first complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF), obtainable from the school’s website. All SIFs must be returned to the school before Saturday 2nd October 2021. Test results will be posted to parents within 7 days of completion of all the tests. Places are allocated in rank order, based on the outcome of the aptitude testing. In the case of a tie on score, the straight line distance rule will be applied to determine the awarding of a place.
Notification of selection will be announced by the Local Education Authority on National Offer Day, 1st March 2022.
For Creative Arts, applicants will be required to demonstrate a particular aptitude for Creative Dramatics,
Instrumental or Vocal Performance. Applicants will be required to audition, as well as complete a written
test as part of the process.
Unlike most UK state schools, you are able to specify your instrument and level of playing on the application form.
