Alongside the current Gresham's Scholarship - just awarded to Tiah-Paige Davie - students in year 10 have been offered the chance to attend a second private school 13 miles away from Cambridgeshire's cathedral city, Peterborough.
The students at Venture aren't the only ones to be offered this scholarship, unlike the Gresham's process, they will need to be their absolute best to beat 8 other OAT academies. To proceed in the process, student's need to write an essay about "Why they desire to attend Oundle" and focus on topics such as: career aspirations, opportunities, etc.
The aforementioned essay must be emailed/handed in by Friday 24th March, giving students just 1 week to get typing! This will then decide on a final 4 for Ormiston Venture and interviews will proceed.
