King's College has a fine reputation for academic teaching, as well as for sport, music, art, drama, design technology and other extra-curricular activities and outdoor pursuits.
Results at both GCSE and A level put King's among the top schools in the region and pupils go on to achieve great success at university and beyond.
The School is determined to foster an appreciation of learning for its own sake, and an enthusiasm which goes far beyond mere examination. We wish to attract boys and girls with exceptional academic capability, those with musical or sporting talent and ambition, and those able to demonstrate outstanding creative potential.
There are a limited number of awards available to candidates who are about to enter the School in Year 9 (13+) or into the Sixth Form (16+). These awards recognise excellence and potential in a range of areas and are made on the basis of open competition.
We offer the following awards at both 13+ and 16+:
- Design Technology
In addition we offer Somerset Awards to pupils joining King's College from the state school sector.
11+ scholarships (academic, sport and music) are awarded by King's College for pupils at, or entering, King's Hall School.
It is not unusual for candidates to enter for more than one award and to receive multiple offers of exhibitions and/or scholarships.
Our Scholarships Brochure gives further details of the various awards available and the procedure for application.
