A wide range of scholarships are available each year for entry to Years 7, 9, and 12. The awards are made in recognition of excellence in Academic ability, Art, Drama, Design & Technology, Music, and Sport. A John Wesley Scholarship to recognise potential in all-round contribution to school life is also available for boarding students. You can download a copy of our latest Scholarships and Bursaries information here.

Scholarships assessments for Year 7 and 12 normally take place in November, and Year 9 in February in the school year preceding entry.

In keeping with the Christian ethos and traditions of the School, the Headmaster and Governors seek to provide financial assistance to families where it is felt that a particular child would benefit from the type of education Kingswood provides and where there is a proven genuine need. All bursary applications are means-tested for eligibility and assessed by the Director of Admissions, Director of Finance and Headmaster.

Bursaries are not available for children attending Kingswood Preparatory School unless there are very exceptional circumstances. Parents who wish to be considered for bursarial support should complete the Financial Statement Form which can be requested by emailing the admissions team at

The completed form should be submitted in confidence, together with any relevant supporting information, for assessment. As no awards can be made after an offer is made, we encourage families who feel they may be eligible for bursarial support to discuss the matter with the Director of Admissions well in advance of making a formal application for entry and before any assessment papers are taken.
