Lady Popplewell Awards to Ashfold School

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 girls entering Form 5 the opportunity to be awarded our Lady Popplewell Awards. 

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

They may be girls who thrive on the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold or girls with 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 girls 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.

Lady Popplewell Awards can be awarded to girls entering Form 5 who bring something extra to the School. They may be girls who thrive on the many opportunities on offer at Ashfold or girls with a particular passion for art, design technology, history, languages, music, drama, sport or something entirely different. We see our award winners as girls who are able to make a significant contribution to school life and enrich the school community.

Award winners are expected to continue at Ashfold for Forms 5 and 6.

These prestigious awards come with a 5% fee discount on school fees for Forms 5 and 6. In addition, means-tested bursaries may also be awarded up to a value of 25% of fees.

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