Sixth Form

Scholarships

Sixth Form Scholarships reward the very best. Gaining a scholarship to Sixth Form is a great honour and one that will open many doors in the future. Scholars can expect to go to the top of the pile when applying for higher education, apprenticeships or employment. Pride in gaining a scholarship award is immense and the status and prestige can be carried through life. At Kingsley we recognise that not every student can excel in every area so we offer a range of scholarships to ensure that all students can be considered, no matter what their particular skill, talent or academic strength. The system aims to provide experience of a selection process alongside vital interview skills so that even if they are unsuccessful, students will benefit from the opportunity to be considered.

The process for internal and external candidates differs as we use our existing knowledge of our current students as a basis when assessing their suitability for a scholarship. We offer academic scholarships, to cover the range of academic subjects; major scholarships, for exceptional academic and/or practical performance; and performance scholarships in drama, music, art, photography and sport. Further details on all are available below.

If you have questions about the scholarship process, please contact the Registrar Office at registrar@kingsleyschool.co.uk or by phone at 01926 425127.
