Parents of talented academic, sports and music pupils are urged to visit Hunstanton Glebe House School’s open day on Saturday to find out about a range of scholarships on offer.
Headmaster John Crofts, pictured, says that the independent school is keen to support talented young people in the community through its scholarship programme, commenting: “Eight years ago, Glebe House School featured in a Channel 4 programme, Admission Impossible, in which a young boy aspired to join the school and, through a scholarship and the establishment of a trust fund, he did so until his family relocated to Cyprus on an RAF attachment.
“Since then, the trust fund has supported three other children alongside a range of academic, sport and music scholarships to provide a Glebe education and progression to a number of independent senior schools.
“This year, a number of children have joined Glebe through scholarships and a local trust fund. ”
One of the school’s September 2013 intake was Emily Ringwood, whose entry is supported by a music scholarship. Emily’s application included a citation from Claire Stewart, director of music at the Sandringham Estate, who believes Emily has potential as a future Ely Cathedral chorister.
Lloyd Sandy, chairman of the Board of Governors at Glebe House School, said: “We welcome all parents and prospective pupils to our Open Day to discover the difference that a Glebe House School education can offer.
“We are well positioned to help local children develop their talents through our academic, sports and cultural programme.”
