13+ Art Scholarship

This option is open to boys in Year 8 who have been offered deferred conditional places for the RGS Third Form and to current RGS Second Form boys who joined the School at 11.

The application forms, which are sent out in November, need to be signed by the Head of the Preparatory School and a parent before being returned early January.

The boys are assessed during an observational drawing session in late February and they also have an interview with the Headmaster and the Head of Art. Boys must bring with them a portfolio comprising no more than ten pieces including working drawings (or sketchbooks) and finished works of which at least two should be in colour. Any three-dimensional pieces should be presented in photographic form.
