Perse Travel Award

The Perse Travel Award is a unique initiative designed to provide our Lower Sixth students with the chance to embark on educational adventures during their summer holidays, fostering personal growth, cultural understanding and skill development.

Students can receive up to £200 in financial support to aid their educational journeys, perhaps to help with travel abroad, where they can immerse themselves in different cultures and languages.

For those interested in enhancing their language skills, it’s a golden opportunity to put theory into practice, communicating effectively in real-life settings beyond the classroom.

The Perse Travel Award can also be used to help towards valuable work experience in areas of interest, gaining hands-on knowledge and skills that can be instrumental in shaping future careers.
