Kellett School Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries Programme 

Kellett School’s first Academic Scholars were appointed in September 2019 drawn from students enrolled in the two Preparatory Schools. From 2020 both internal and external students will be invited to apply.  

The programme is designed to roll out year on year to provide scholarships and bursaries in the areas of academic, general, sport, music and the arts. It is anticipated that a number of students selected for the programme shall seek to enter Oxbridge and Ivy League/ Elite Universities.  


The Mini-MBA is a programme designed for Sixth Form students and will be developed with key higher education and business partners.  It is part of Kellett’s commitment to prepare young people for the world of work of the mid-C21.  

Year 12 students will participate in the first module of the Mini-MBA, which covers ‘Personal Impact and Presence’ during term one. Following this, students elect whether to continue with the Mini-MBA. Those who continue complete modules covering ‘Business Performance’, ‘Marketing’ and ‘Strategy’. They will additionally complete an assignment linked to their work experience which will be assessed by course teachers. The final module is the completion of a Business Simulation Day. 

This prominent ambassador in the wider community will have excellent inter-personal skills and will be a firm believer in the ethos and aims of the school.
