Red & Yellow Scholarships

Do you have a natural talent? Are you a creative thinker? Are you rocking your grades? Do you want a meaningful career, not just ‘a job’? Then we’re interested!

Our scholarships pay tribute to the incredible people who’ve played a key role in developing our school, producing incredible Alumni that have gone on to become business leaders and shape-shifters around the world.

What is the difference between scholarships and bursaries?

Bursaries are awarded to talented students who don’t have the financial means to study further. (We’re proud to say that in 2018, we surpassed our social promise goal of 10%.) Whereas scholarships are based on merit, talent and outstanding achievements only. Our chance to help bright, keenly ambitious and super-talented young humans realise their full career potential.

How does it work?

Tuition fees will be covered for five humans, based on 4 criteria:


Scholarship Applicable programme Attributes that talk to their legacy (we’re looking for…)
Bob Rightford BA Degree in Visual Communications Exceptionally creative business thinkers
