The Joanna Lumley Scholarship

Each year Battle Abbey School invites applications from suitable candidates for the Joanna Lumley Scholarship in Performing Arts.

The Scholarship is open to new entrants into Year 12 at Battle Abbey, who are joining us from a state school and who have strong interest and exceptional ability in the Performing Arts. It may be worth up to 90% of school fees (subject to means-testing) for the two years of AS/A2 studies.

Auditions for the next award will be held at the School in November 2020.

We are looking for performers who are strong in Drama, and who also have ability and potential in Music, Dance or Stage Craft. We will send full detailed instructions to all candidates who register for the Audition Day.
