Up to 18 pupils (10% of the annual intake) will be admitted who show that they can contribute at a high level to major school sports or music and would be willing to support the corporate and extra-curricular life of the School. If your son has a particular aptitude for sport or music and you would alike to apply under the scholarship criteria, please give details of his achievements and any appropriate groups or clubs to which he belongs when completing the application form below.
Places will be awarded following assessment of the pupils’ aptitude by the School’s sports staff. Applications will be welcomed if supported by a written recommendation from an accredited representative of a recognised sports association, normally of County standard. Consideration will be given to candidates without that level of qualification but who otherwise demonstrate exceptional sporting aptitude. The major school sports under this criterion are cricket, football and rugby.
Each candidate applying under this criterion will be invited to attend a written musical aptitude
test at Enfield Grammar School. Candidates who achieve the qualifying mark in the test will be invited back to attend an audition to perform a single piece on their chosen instrument or vocally. The musical aptitude test is of approximately 40 minutes’ duration and does not require any formal knowledge of music theory. The test will cover questions on pitch, rhythm, texture and melody and will be performed on computers. During the audition, candidates will perform a piece of their choosing either instrumental or vocal (accompanist will not be provided). Performances should last no longer than three minutes. As there is a free choice of instrument and piece, candidates of all abilities and all cultures will have the opportunity to succeed. The purpose of the audition is to both access ability and the candidate’s capacity to learn or develop musical skills and benefit from the opportunities at Enfield Grammar School.
