Design & Technology Scholarship – Phipps Award (16+)
Design & Technology Scholarship - Phipps Award (16+):
Thanks to a magnificent donation by an Old Felician, the Phipps Award will be offered to exceptionally gifted students entering the Sixth Form, to enable them to study Design and Technology at Advanced Level at Saint Felix. Students will follow a Product Design course, working with wood, metal, plastics or ceramics.
Candidates will be asked to bring with them a portfolio of their work which will probably include some of their GCSE coursework. Each candidate will be asked to do some practical work as part of the scholarship examination and should also expect to be asked questions about the work of designers who have influenced their own design ideas.
Awards, of up to 50% of the fees, will be made to those applicants who demonstrate, via competitive examination and practical evidence, both innovative flair and the potential to excel.
