Leathersellers’ Scholarship Evening
Colfe’s School has strong links with the City of London and the Worshipful Company of Leathersellers, one of the City’s great livery companies. Each year the Leathersellers’ fund free Sixth Form places for able pupils from state schools to study for their A-levels at Colfe’s.
80% of Colfe’s 2017 leavers gained places at their first-choice university and former Leathersellers’ Scholars are now studying at some of the country’s leading Russell Group institutions including Oxford and Cambridge.
What qualifications do I need to become a Leathersellers’ Scholar?
Most applicants need to achieve at least five A* grades at GCSE or the numerical equivalent, where qualifications have been awarded using the new 9-1 grading system. In addition, you should qualify for the government’s pupil premium or your family income should be below £40,000 a year. Priority is given to applicants needing significant financial help.
