Reece Foundation Bursary Scheme

For full details of how to apply, please email the Head of Admissions, Mrs Ali Perry or call on 0191 2128968.

The Newcastle-based Reece Foundation is generously offering two Sixth Form means-tested bursaries at the Royal Grammar School from September 2024.

Applications for places are invited from boys and girls in maintained secondary schools who will be completing their GCSEs in summer 2024. 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.

Depending on financial eligibility, the Reece Foundation Bursary Scheme will provide up to 100% assistance with school fees at the RGS: the only “extras” are school dinners, music lessons and extracurricular trips etc. The school provides all books, exam entry fees and a host of co-curricular activities within the school fee.

Offers of a Reece Foundation Bursary will be made after interview by the school, at which candidates will be expected to demonstrate their commitment to a future in engineering.
