The King's School Scholarship and Boarding Bursaries

Scholarship and Boarding Bursaries - Introduction

The King's School is fortunate to be able to offer a range of scholarships and bursaries for entry to Years 7 - 11. Many of these awards have been established as a result of the generosity of parents, friends, associated organisations and bequests. The majority of Scholarships are awarded for entry into Year 7 although other entry levels are also available. Up to 20 scholarships may be awarded in any year.

Application for Scholarships may be made through the Scholarships Advisor, Ms Debbie de Belle, at any time. The majority of awards are offered in the first months of each year and are relevant to the following academic year.
