Tallow Chandlers' bursaries
Thanks to the generosity of the Tallow Chandlers Company, a City of London livery company, we are able to offer bursaries to the top performing students in STEM subjects at AS level.
The Tallow Chandlers are helping us promote and develop the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM subjects) in the school. As well as providing invaluable mentoring sessions and funding for university visits, the Company has set up the STEM bursary scheme which is of enormous benefit to our students - and a great incentive for students going into Year 12 each year.
Bursaries worth £500 are given to the top performing students at AS level in these subjects:
Maths Biology Physics Chemistry Computer Science
Provided the bursary winners take a STEM subject at university, they receive a further bursary worth £1000 during their first year.
The Company introduced a new award in 2016 for students in Years 11 or 13 who are going to college to study a STEM based City and Guilds course. This bursary, worth £500, is to help with the cost of transport, equipment and other expenses.
Award winners attend an Awards Luncheon in the Tallow Chandlers Hall in the City, an impressive building that dates from 1672. See if you can spot our award winners below.
