Year 7 Academic Scholarship for 2017  Saturday 18th March

Applications are invited from both internal and external candidates who are currently in Year 6. Academic Scholarships for Year 7 and beyond will be awarded only to students who are intending to enter the Upper School and will include a reduction in school fees determined by the Headmaster.

Scholarship applicants must return the application form by Monday 6th March to the Head of Admissions, Mrs Helen Parker (admissions@kingswoodhouse.org).

The award of an Academic Scholarship from Year 7 will be based on very high performance on the Scholarship examination and interview day.

Criteria for the award will include:

Very high standards of attainment in the assessment papers (English and mathematics).
A school reference of support testifying to academic strength, good character, exemplary behaviour and strong community involvement.
A successful interview with a member of the Senior Leadership Team in which we will seek evidence of an inquiring mind, breadth of knowledge and sound moral judgement.
Scholarships will normally be awarded up to the end of Year 11 and are dependent on pupils maintaining high overall standards of achievement, effort and behaviour.

Applicants who reach the required standards will be offered a scholarship from the start of Year 7.

Bursary

The Governors of Kingswood House School are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of schools fees. Such support is known as a Bursary and these may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants.

Bursaries may be made available to parents/guardians of children entering any year group. Parents/guardians seeking a bursary are required to complete the School’s Registration Form and an application form which seeks to establish the financial circumstances of the household. Their child may then be invited into the School for an assessment day to ensure that they would benefit from the education offered by Kingswood House.

Bursaries are also available for existing parents/guardians where a change in circumstances has resulted in difficulty meeting tuition fees and may result in the child being withdrawn part way through a stage of education. Parents/guardians seeking a bursary are required to complete an application form which seeks to establish the financial circumstances of the household.

All bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the Governors, and the Head and School Bursar are responsible for the management and coordination of the process. All bursaries are means tested and have terms and conditions. For further information, please contact the Head or the Bursar by emailing bursar@kingswoodhouse.org.
