For 2021/22 youth programmes at the National Centre

The scholarship scheme

The scholarship scheme, which forms part of our commitment to making our activities accessible at National Centre for Circus Arts, allows successful participants to be awarded a full academic year on one of our youth programmes at no cost (September 2021 – July 2022).

Our scholarship scheme is for participants on our youth programmes:

  • Family Circus (Nursery – Reception)
  • Primary Circus (Yr1 -2)
  • Junior Circus (Yr3- 6)
  • Youth Circus (Yr7 – 12)
  • and London Youth Circus

If you are already taking part in classes with us in Term 1 and are successful in gaining a scholarship this will be backdated to the start of September 2021 (Term 1) and you will be refunded any fee you have paid.

If you are not taking classes with us and would like to apply, your scholarship will be pending availability within the class you would like to join from Term 2 in January. (This excludes London Youth Circus as an option)

Everyone is welcome to apply, however priority will go to those within the following eligibilities or a combination of them.  These requirements are set by our funders of the scholarship scheme.


Applications for 2021/22 are now closed. 

Please check back in summer 2022 for updates to our scholarship programme.
