Royal Grammar School


    Reece Foundation Engineering Scholarships

    The Newcastle-based Reece Foundation is generously offering two fully- funded sixth form places at the Royal Grammar School from September 2020. Applications for places are invited from boys and girls in maintained secondary schools who will be completing their GCSEs in summer 2020. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a strong interest in, and aptitude for, engineering as a future career; will be predicted grades 7 - 9  in maths and science subjects at GCSE; and will be prepared to follow A levels in STEM subjects (Sciences, Technology, Mathematics) which will equip them for application to university engineering courses.

    The Reece Foundation endowment will cover all school fees at the RGS: the only extras are school dinners, music lessons and extra-curricular trips etc. The school provides all books, exam entry fees and a host of extra-curricular activities within the school fee.

    Offers of Reece Foundation Scholarships will be made after interview by the school at which candidates will be expected to demonstrate their commitment to a future in engineering. Reece Foundation Scholarships are not means-tested and we would encourage applications from anyone interested who fits the criteria set out above. However, should there be a large number of candidates doing well at interview, then family income may be taken into consideration.

    For full details of how to apply and for Sixth Form courses at the RGS, please contact the Head of Admissions, Ali Perry –  Tel: 0191 2128968
