Scholarships and Bursaries

The King's School is fortunate to offer a range of Scholarships and Bursaries for entry to Years 7—11. Many of these awards have been established due to the generosity of Old Boys, parents, friends, associated organisations and endowments.

The majority of Scholarships are awarded for entry into Year 7. A limited number of awards may also be offered for entry into Years 8 to 11.

Some scholarships are means-tested.

Most bursaries are given to help with boarding costs and are subject to an assessment of financial capacity.

All scholarships and bursaries are subject to specific terms and conditions, which will be contained in any offer letter. Awards are subject to the conditions detailed, and the letter of offer will generally continue for the duration of the student’s enrolment at The King’s School until graduation from Year 12.

Awards of means-tested scholarships and bursaries require an annual compliance statement from parents. If the financial position of the family improves during the period of the award, families are required to bring this to the notice of the School such that the arrangement may be reviewed. The School may, at its discretion, ask families to submit updated information on their financial position from time to time to confirm the financial arrangements.
