We are delighted to announce a new scholarship into the Sixth Form here at Langley School. The Anthony Arthur Coward Scholarship offers a fully funded, two-year place into the Lower Sixth (Year 12), covering all costs and fees.
The scholarship celebrates outstanding academic potential and will be awarded on both academic ability and socio-economic need. Applications for the scholarship are open to all Year 11 pupils who believe they match these criteria.
Anthony Coward was a pupil at Langley in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Tragically, Anthony died young and his Aunt, Barbara Hunt, wanted to reflect his fondness for our Langley Community in her will, leaving a very generous legacy to the school in his memory. The scholarship has been set up in his honour, so that other young people across Norfolk and Suffolk can benefit from a Langley education.
Our Headmaster Jon Perriss said: “I am delighted to be able to introduce this new award. The generosity of Anthony Coward’s family will enable young people to attend the school who would not be able to do so without financial help. This particular award is focused on intellect and academic ability; both proven and potential, and we’re delighted we are able to offer this to young people across the county.”
In addition to the Anthony Arthur Coward Scholarship, we also offer the Nelson Scholarship into the Sixth Form. In partnership with leadership mentoring organisation Nelsonspirit, this award also offers access to a fully funded two-year place at the school. Our values at Langley of kindness, curiosity, confidence (with humility) and integrity are central to this award and aims to develop the whole person in preparation for a life of choice and possibility.
Applications for both scholarships are open and can be made online here: https://langleyschool.co.uk/sixth-form/scholarships
The closing date for applications is Friday 21st October.
