BURSARIES
Bursary requests are considered on a case by case basis. Applications are means-tested and reviewed annually and focus on the financial circumstances of the family. Bursaries are normally limited to a range of 10% to 30% of the day tuition fees.

SIBLING POLICY
Most siblings join us at King William's College and The Buchan School. The first sibling of a student already in the School will receive a 10% Award; other siblings will receive a 30% Award.

CHILDREN OF CLERGY POLICY
A reduction of one third of the fee for boarders and one half of the fee for day pupils is allowed to children of clergy holding a benefice or Bishop's licence and residing in the Isle of Man. There is a similar arrangement for children of Methodist Ministers.

SERVICES POLICY
A reduction of 15 per cent is allowed for serving members of the Armed Forces of the Crown. Once a pupil is accepted, the reduction continues even though the parent may leave the Services.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
Our Academic Scholarships and Drama, Golf, Music and Sport Awards are available to pupils entering Lower Fourth (Year 7). They are highly prized and are designed to reward excellence and celebrate exceptional talent in a particular field.

Each year King William's College attracts high calibre applicants who enrich the School, not only in their specialist areas, but also in all facets of School life. Throughout their time at College we aim to provide each pupil with encouragement and tailored support to develop their talents and excel in their specialist area.

All Scholarships are won in open competition and are awarded solely on merit. Each Scholarship and Award is held from 1st September of the year of entry until the Scholar leaves the College, provided the pupil's work and conduct continue to be of the highest standard.

If a candidate applies for more than one Scholarship or Award the maximum reduction offered will not exceed 10% of the tuition fee. Scholarship and Award holders are also able to apply for means-tested Bursaries.

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS
