D'Arcy Slater Scholarship
D’Arcy William Slater joined the Preparatory School in 1986 and then became a member of Freeth House until his tragic death on 26th June 1991. He is remembered as a happy and lively teenager full of fun, who was a good student and represented the School in Swimming, Tennis, Football and Chess. The scholarship was established in 1997.
This scholarship is awarded annually to a boy entering Year 7, in memory of D’Arcy Slater. The successful applicant will have demonstrated the potential to make a strong all-round contribution to the School and possess early indications of leadership potential. The boy should have represented their Primary School or club in a sporting capacity. Preference is given to candidates who come from a worthy family which, for financial reasons, might not normally consider the enrolment of a son at the School. The scholarship provides for the full remission of tuition fees and is tenable for 6 years, provided that satisfactory progress is made.
