How to Join KHS

 

Prospective parents are invited to visit us either on an Open Morning or on an alternative day which suits them when they will be given a tour of the School, meet the Headmaster and other members of staff.
When you visit us, please park at the front of the School.

The next step is to register your child for a place at KHS.
Please contact our Admissions Registrar, Mrs Helen Parker, on 01372 723590 or email admissions@kingswoodhouse.org.
You will also need to pay a Registration Fee of £100 before being assessed.

 

Taster Day and Offer of a Place

A mutually agreed day will be arranged for the child to attend the school. During the Taster Day the child will have the opportunity to experience a day at Kingswood House and meet the peer group of the class. During this visit, the SENco will meet with the child on 1:1 basis to talk and do a few informal tests to assess the level of performance. The Headmaster will contact the parents after all feedback has been gathered in order to make a fair decision, based upon a range of evidence. A decision will always be made in the best interests of the child. If a pupil satisfies our entry criteria, a place is available and a satisfactory reference from the pupil’s current school received, then an offer will be made. Written confirmation will be sent – and once accepted – full joining details will follow.

Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to bright and talented boys for entry into Year 3, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 9. Assessments take place in November (6+ & 9+) and February (11+ & 13+) the year prior to entry and applications are open to both internal and external candidates. Academic or All-Rounder awards are offered up to a value of 30% of tuition fees. Additional bursarial support is available, where there is a genuine need, of up to 100% of tuition fees.

The Governors of Kingswood House School are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible parents or 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.

Further information is available on our ‘Scholarships and Bursaries’ page.

 

Please Note: Parents have a responsibility to inform the prospective school of any issues/conditions and disclose any reports both medical and academic relating to the applicant. Withholding information may necessitate the School reviewing their offer of a place.
