Scholarship Success

May 16

Our Upper Sixth pupils (Year 8) have been celebrating another bumper year of scholarship success.   Once again Hanford girls have been awarded a range of scholarships and awards from the senior schools of their choice.   We are delighted for them and extremely proud of their achievements.

Aline was awarded the coveted Bodinnar All Rounder scholarship (academic, sport and
art) by St Mary’s Calne.

Coco was awarded an Academic and a Drama scholarship by Canford.

Rachel was awarded an Academic scholarship by Truro High School as well as a Commendation in Humanities by Downe House.

Silvia was awarded a Humanities Prize by Benenden.

Clemmie was awarded an Academic Exhibition in French by Oundle.

Hilary Phillips, Head of Hanford, said of the girls,
“These are fantastic achievements, across the board.  We are incredibly proud of all the girls who put in hours of extra effort working their scholarships.   A special mention should go to Coco; to have been awarded both an Academic and a Drama scholarship is amazing, but what is even more amazing is the fact that she is determined to keep working hard until the end of term.    In addition, Aline’s achievement in being awarded the Bodinnar All Rounder scholarship is very impressive and also very well deserved.   Aline is not only a talented sportswoman and
hardworking pupil in the classroom, she is also a great leader and role model to the younger girls. We are very pleased that her efforts across the whole of the curriculum have been recognised.”

We have received some lovely testimonials from the girls’ parents as well.


“We are so proud of her achievement and the hard work that went into it. The school has been amazing in supporting her towards her scholarship and giving her both the preparation and the confidence to do so well.”


“Thank you and all the many staff who’ve taught and guided and encouraged her to get to this point. She’s had so many wonderful influences. I hope you take great pride too.”


Congratulations to all our scholars and to their teachers who inspired, encouraged and helped them along the way.
