Creative Arts Scholarship

FPS has a fantastic Creative Arts faculty, which includes Dance, Drama, Music, Photography, and Visual Arts. If your son or daughter is a talented artist in any field, they may wish to apply for an Arts scholarship.

To apply for an Arts scholarship you will need to fill out an application form. Your child will then be scheduled for an interview where their portfolio of work and achievements will be discussed.

Sport plays a huge role in the physical, social and mental wellbeing of our students. At FPS we strive to ensure that all students enjoy participation in a wide range of activities and find the one area they can continue enjoying at the highest level.
