A scholarship that will get you places

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 both 2018 and 2019, 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 our scholarship work?

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

In 2022 you will be required to pay it forward by working at R&Y for up to 5 hours a week. This may include (for example) representing the School as a student ambassador (on our online Unibuddy platform), helping out at Open Days or helping out in the photography lab. You will not be expected to work for the School during study and exam weeks, but might be needed during the student holidays. You will be expected to log the hours and have them signed off on a monthly basis.
