Kingswood House has a proud record of academic and all-round achievement. We offer academic scholarships for entry into Year 3 as well as academic and all-rounder scholarships into Years 5, 7 and 9.
Academic scholarships entail attendance at an assessment morning where candidates will sit papers in English, mathematics, and, where deemed appropriate, Verbal Reasoning, and have an interview with a senior member of staff. All subjects will be based on the National Curriculum in order to be accessible to boys from both the independent and maintained sectors.
All-Rounder scholarships will be assessed by the submission of a portfolio of evidence in relation to two or more areas of excellence from the following disciplines: Sport, Music, Creative Arts, Performing Arts and Citizenship. A short interview and related observation will normally be conducted as a part of the process on, or close to, the assessment day. Candidates will be expected to satisfy the School’s normal academic entrance criteria.
A reference from the boy’s current school should be provided at the time of submission together with supporting references from outside agencies in respect of All-Rounder applications.
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where a change in circumstances has resulted in difficulty meeting tuition fees and may result in the child being withdrawn part way through a stage of education.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 Headmaster 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 Bursar by emailing the office, firstname.lastname@example.org
All bursaries and scholarships may be withdrawn in accordance with the terms upon which such award is made or in accordance with the School’s Terms and Conditions.
Kingswood House offers 5% discount on tuition fees for siblings.
