Over £5,000 has been awarded to talented students from across the David Ross Education Trust (DRET), as part of an exclusive scholarship programme for music, sport and the arts.

A grade six ballet dancer, a champion swimmer and a talented cellist are among the recipients of the Odey Scholarship, which is generously funded by Mr Crispin Odey.

Simon Northcott, Director of Enrichment for the David Ross Education Trust, said: “It is so important to enable our students to achieve their full potential in every area of their education. This scholarship helps our talented students to pursue their specialisms in music, sport and the arts and we are delighted to be able to support them.

He continued: “We are very grateful for the generosity of Mr Odey, his continued support has allowed more of our students to flourish in their fields of interest.

“We received so many fantastic applications and although we could only select a handful, we are excited to see how the scholarship will help our students progress.”

Any student can apply for the Odey Scholarship to receive up to £1,000 to help buy equipment, undertake additional training and support travel expenses.

The latest recipients of the Odey Scholarship are:

Thalia, a Year 5 pupil from Hogsthorpe Primary Academy, for Show Jumping
Emilia, a Year 6 student from Eastfield Academy, for Cello
Rory, a Year 7 student from Lodge Park Academy, for Martial Arts
