TWO new Robinson Fellowship Awards in Dance are being offered by Coventry’s Pattison College for new and current pupils aged 16 and above.
The awards are named in honour of Sir Ken Robinson, one of the world’s best educationalists and an inspiration to the Pattison College leadership team and will cover tuition fees.
They are being launched this week to coincide with the Imagine If Festival, an online celebration of the life and work of Sir Ken.
The Fellowships are designed to recognise and support talented students to ensure they have all the resources they need to help them develop their creativity.
They will be awarded to students who, further to an assessment and informal interview, show natural talent as well as aspirations to excel.
All students who receive a Fellowship will have an important role to play in Pattison College’s dance programme for 2021/2022.
This will be recognised throughout the school year and will make an important contribution to the wonderful creativity that already exists there.
Pattison College headmaster John Taylor said: “Well-known Pattison College alumni already abound as performers, choreographers and directors in London’s West End, on Hollywood film sets and at events around the world and these Fellowships are designed to highlight and support the next generation of Pattison alumni.”
He urged all students who had a passion for dance and wanted to take it to a professional level to find out more.
For parents who are new to Pattison College, virtual open days are being held and further details about them can be found on the Pattison College website and social media platforms – Twitter and Facebook, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is March 31.
