It is the policy of the Governors to review the fees annually and to minimise fee increases. Parents are normally advised of fee increases prior to the beginning of the Summer term.
The annual fee is payable in three equal instalments and is due by the first day of each term or by monthly instalments with the prior agreement of the Bursar.
Scholarships & Bursaries
A wide range of scholarships is available each year for entry to Years 7, 9 and 12. The awards are made in recognition of excellence in academic ability, Art, Drama, Music, Sport, and Design and Technology. 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 2018 Scholarships and Bursaries information below.
Scholarships for Year 12 are normally granted in November, Year 7 scholarships in December and Year 9 scholarships in February of 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 Bursar and Headmaster.
All pupils entering Years 7 and 8 and overseas candidates for Years 9 and 10 take age-specific papers in English, Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning. UK candidates for Years 9 and 10 also take science, a foreign language (French, German, Latin or Spanish) plus a choice of two humanities papers (Geography, History or Religious Studies).
For UK candidates, entrance exams are generally taken at Kingswood or at the prospective pupil’s current school. For overseas candidates, assessment papers can only be taken under the supervision of a Kingswood agent or at the offices of the British Council. All such arrangements must be agreed upon by the Head of Admissions, Diane Patterson.
