Lady Popplewell Awards

Each year we prepare boys and girls for a wide range of scholarships to some of the best senior schools in the country.

Ashfold also offers children entering Form 5 the opportunity to be awarded our Lady Popplewell Awards. 

We see our award winners as children who make a significant contribution to school life and enrich the school community.

They may be girls or boys who thrive on the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold or have a particular passion for art, design technology, history, languages, music, drama, sport or something entirely different.

Lady Popplewell was a Governor at Ashfold for many years. She was a passionate advocate of children staying on to 13+, so that they could make the most of the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold in Forms 5 and 6. When she died, the Governors were proud to establish these awards in her name.

These prestigious awards come with a 5% fee discount on school fees for Forms 5 and 6. 

There is no formal application form for Lady Popplewell awards. In the Autumn Term, we contact parents of girls and boys in Form 4 and invite them to put their child's name forward for the award.
