      Scholarships

      A range of scholarships and exhibitions are available to talented pupils. They are awarded to pupils in recognition of academic or musical ability and range in value.

      Academic Scholarships 

      A number of academic scholarships are awarded each year in recognition of an outstanding performance in the 11+ Entrance Examination. They are awarded to boys and girls aged 11 entering the school at the start of Year 7. 
      Pupils gaining an academic scholarship are automatically enrolled on our Challenge & Enrichment Programme. A scholarship usually attracts a financial award of 10% of fees per annum in recognition of the pupil's achievement. Subject to good conduct and progress, academic scholarships are tenable throughout the holder’s career in the school. 

       

      Music Scholarships and Music Exhibitions 

      Music Scholarships and Music Exhibitions are available by audition to candidates sitting the 11+ Entrance Examination (aged 11) and planning to join King’s into Year 7. Those wishing to apply for a Music Scholarship should request a Music Scholarship Application Form from the Admissions Department (admissions@kingsmac.co.uk).

      Applicants should have obtained a standard of at least Associated Board grade 3 or its equivalent in their main instrument (including voice). Following the Entrance Examination, boys and girls are invited to audition in early February for the music scholarships. Each scholarship is valued at up to 10% of fees. Scholarships are tenable throughout the holder’s career in the Senior Division, subject to a full contribution to the music of the school.

      A small number of Music Exhibitions are also available and will be awarded to candidates following the auditions. Music Exhibitions are designed to cover the cost of music tuition and are valued at £600 per annum. Exhibitions are tenable throughout the holder’s career in the Seniors, subject to a full contribution to the music of the school.
      An Organ Scholarship is also available at the discretion of the Director of Music.
