The closing date for letters of application for the Award is Friday 30th September 2016. The letter should state clearly and in as much detail as possible why you want to do the Award and why you would be a good candidate to take on the Award.
If applying for Silver, please state whether you have completed your Bronze level. Those who have completed all sections of their Bronze Award will get priority for places.
The decision as to whether or not pupils are allocated a place will be based primarily on their letter of application, which will be considered within the context of their level of academic ability. Letters should be handed to Miss Sutton (Progress Files Office) or Mr Unsworth (T3) for both Bronze and Silver Awards. Late applications received after the deadline will only be considered if there are still places available.
