11+ Scholarships

11+ scholarships are awarded by King’s College for pupils at, or entering, King’s Hall School. The value of the awards are retained on entry into King’s College subject to the normal annual review process, although award holders are expected to enter for the relevant scholarship tests at 13+. Success here may result in an increase in the value of the award. If holders of 11+ scholarships do not proceed to King’s College, the value of the award must be repaid to the College.

Scholarships offered include Academic, Music, Sport and Drama & Performing Arts (including technical theatre).

General Procedures

All 13+ scholarship testing takes place during the second half of the Lent Term (Spring). All 16+ scholarship testing takes place in the November preceding entry. Exact dates can be obtained from the Director of Admissions and Marketing.

In all the testing, the emphasis is on allowing the candidates an opportunity to demonstrate their strengths and we hope they find the experience enjoyable.

All scholarship testing involves interviews with members of staff and the Headmaster. We focus on putting candidates at ease and allowing them an opportunity to talk about their enthusiasms. Credit will be given to those who seem genuinely interested in their subjects, have read widely and can apply their knowledge to new situations and problems.

 

References

The School will seek references from the candidate’s present school, so it is essential that the candidate’s present Head be informed of the intention to apply for a scholarship.

Many prep schools will have copies of entry forms available. Forms may also be obtained from the Admissions Office. The application must be by signed hard copy and may not be submitted electronically.

The Headmaster will inform parents of the results of the scholarship tests and examinations soon after they are taken.

 

Academic Entry Requirements

Successful candidates who enter for academic awards will have satisfied the academic requirements for entry into the School. If unsuccessful, the School may or may not waive the need for them to fulfill usual entry requirements (such as Common Entrance).

Candidates for all other scholarships will be required to meet the usual academic entry standards for the School, whether they are successful in their scholarships or not.

In brief these standards are:

  • At 13+ - a pass at Common Entrance or in the School’s own entrance tests
  • At 16+ - 27 points (made up of the scores from the top five GCSE grades) and a grade 4 in English and maths

For sports scholarships, candidates will also be required to sit a verbal reasoning paper. In addition, applicants for whom English is not a first language will be required to pass language proficiency tests.
