Academic Scholarship Success for Jessica
Year 6 pupil at Pewsey-based Prep School, Jessica, is reaching for the stars having secured an Academic Scholarship to local Senior School, Dauntsey’s.
Jessica is the third pupil in a row from the Wiltshire Prep School to secure an Academic Scholarship to Dauntsey’s, following in Elizabeth and Daisy’s footsteps. An Academic Scholarship to Dauntsey’s is awarded based on academic performance during the entrance assessments, and is a phenomenal achievement.
Jessica is already a celebrated member of the St Francis community – having won a variety of (space-related) awards over the past 8 months, including receiving a personal message from Astronaut Tim Peake for one prize.
Head at St Francis, David Lee enthused “We are delighted for Jessica, who has shown incredibly maturity and poise in the way she has approached the Dauntsey’s entrance assessments. Jessica is a very bright and determined person, and we look forward to seeing her future successes and watching her hone her academic prowess at her chosen senior school.”
When asked about her scholarship, Jessica admitted, “I wasn’t expecting to get it at all, but I am really proud I did”.
