Academic excellence, achievement and high aspirations are key features of an education at Kingsley. As a result, a limited number of academic and Kingsley scholarships (up to 30% of fees) are awarded to a number of new Year 7 pupils in recognition of their academic excellence. Candidates for the academic scholarship will be selected on the basis of their performance in the entrance examination. This means that any Kingsley Preparatory pupils who wish to be considered for this scholarship should also register for the entrance examination.

The Kingsley School, as part of the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, benefits from a scheme offering the possibility of free or discounted places based on financial need for candidates at 11+ and 16+.

Additional financial help may also be available for educational visits, uniforms, transport and lunches.

Within the bursaries available from the Foundation, are the CV34 Awards. These funds are specifically earmarked for children whose families live within the CV34 postcode and the school is grateful to King Henry VIII Endowed Trust and The Charity of Sir Thomas White, Warwick for their financial support.

The support available is based on the following

1) Financial Need – determined by a means testing assessment

2) Your child’s performance – based on exam results, the interview and the report received from your child’s current school

3) Overall demand – bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, as limited funds are available.

Means testing is established based on relevant ‘net income’, assessed on completion of the bursary application form. The amount of discount is offered on a sliding scale, and if your household income exceeds £40,000 after tax or you have substantial assets, you are unlikely to qualify.

You will be required to provide detailed financial information including income, expenditure and details of your net assets. The financial analysis is based on both parents, regardless of current living arrangements. Full terms and conditions of the assessment are included in the bursary application form.

If you are below the income threshold and would like to apply for a bursary, please download and complete the bursary application form and send to the Admissions Department with your daughter’s completed application form for entry. Bursary Applications are now open for 2023 entry. If you have any questions please contact admissions@kingsleyschool.co.uk.

Please be advised that in some cases the Foundation reserves the right to attend a home visit in order to discuss the financial schedule.
