Welcome to The O.S.A. 300 Club. Since we started in 2011, we have provided a Sixth-form scholarship which has enabled a pupil to achieve goals and objectives that would otherwise not been possible. There are detailed criteria for this - academic performance at GCSE and financial need. The OSA is involved from very early days; the College makes a recommendation, the OSA interviews the student and makes a decision. Once the student starts the OSA mentors the successful student throughout the two years in the Sixth Form.

Not only does the OSA organise all the fantastic reunion events that we have every year, but also works hard in the background providing financial assistance towards The Travel Scholarship enabling young people who are in their final year of IB benefit from the fantastic opportunities that Scarborough College offers. This award, up to a value of £1000 can be used to help finance a trip/visit which will make a difference – either to the student in terms of personal development or other people in terms of charitable works or both. There is an application process - details are on the website and we expect the recipient to return to speak of their experience.

We are proud that we have been able to assist some of the brightest young students achieve the best possible start from their education, but this comes at a price. The OSA can only continue to do this with YOUR help, and the 300 Club is a vital part of our fundraising, so why not enrol today and have a chance to win some money whilst also helping give the youngsters the best possible start for tomorrow. The scheme, which costs around 11p a day (£40 a year), can make a huge difference to a talented pupil's life chances.
