Hitchcock Sixth Form Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of past pupil David Hitchcock, Monmouth School is delighted to invite applications for the Hitchcock Sixth Form Scholarship. This will be awarded biennially and will be means-tested and could cover up to 75% of the fees. All applications will be assessed in October/November.

David, who was born in Ebbw Vale, attended Monmouth School in the 1970s after he won the Williams Jones Scholarship. During his time at Monmouth, he fully participated in the many extra-curricular activities that the School had to offer: playing the piano, organ and viola; acting in school plays; being a member of the Monmouth Schools’ Challenge General Knowledge Quiz team that became UK Champions; and becoming a member of the 1st XV. He won an Open Exhibition to Pembroke College Cambridge, where he gained a boxing blue to add to his musical accomplishments. After graduating from The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and serving with the Royal Regiment of Wales and the Gurkhas, he began his career in the City and is currently a Managing Director at JP Morgan where he is Head of Investor Client Management for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

David said, “I feel strongly that without the Williams Jones Scholarship, my life would have been very different and I wish to provide a similar opportunity to future generations. It is important for me to repay, as best I can, the help I was given. Monmouth School offered me, and many other boys, a chance to develop at a crucial and formative time, and the wonderful experience it gives boys today is even more special.”

Anyone interested in finding out more about the scholarship is asked to contact Mrs Diane Jakes, Admissions Registrar, on 01600 710433
