Somerset Scholarships at 16+

Somerset Scholarships at 16+


This scholarship was established in 2007 to benefit academically able pupils from the maintained sector in Somerset who wished to pursue their Sixth Form studies at King’s College.

The scholarship complements the various other 16+ awards available. The number of Somerset Scholarships available is limited and will depend on the number and quality of applicants each year.

The Scholarship itself can carry a fee remission of up to 50% of the day fees. This amount can be enhanced through means-tested bursarial assistance up to 100% of the day fee if necessary.

Candidates for the Scholarship will be interviewed and will sit the school’s own scholarship papers, and a verbal reasoning test. Great emphasis will be placed on academic promise and intellectual curiosity.

The Headmaster is very happy to discuss the details of the Somerset Scholarship and opportunities for studying at King’s College with parents and their children at any time. Please contact the College to make an appointment.
