The Rassmuss Foundation Scholarship


This new award is for a girl joining St Mary’s Calne in September 2020 from the maintained/state sector at 11+ (Year 7) who shows potential in science.

The Rassmuss Scholarship offers the recipient a funded boarding place, subject to means-testing, for a minimum of 5 years.  This would be extended to 7 years for a girl who wishes to study Science subjects at A Level.
