We award merit-based scholarships based upon ability and achievement academically and in music, sport, art and drama. Scholars are ambassadors for the school and are expected to act as positive role models and leaders.


Academic Scholarships

KPS Seniors Awards

Candidates sit exams in mathematics, English and science. No special preparation is required, with the emphasis placed on how pupils apply knowledge and skills.

Pupils who have studied the National Curriculum, the Common Entrance syllabus or equivalent will be able to address the questions. We do not provide specimen papers.


KPS Sixth Form Awards

Academic Awards for the Sixth Form are based upon success in GCSE results and potential success at A-Level. They are awarded at the start of the Lower Sixth.  


Art, Music, Drama and Sport scholarships

We are aware that some particularly talented pupils require specialist external training and rehearsal time. These include young musicians taught by leading independent teachers, actors at drama schools and athletes training with professional clubs and associations. KPS is able to support these gifted young people by offering both financial support by way of scholarships and additionally offering the freedom to remain with an existing coach/club or to join one of our partners.

We also explore ways to make the best use of free time during the day for pupils to practise, train or rehearse in what can be a demanding regime that may require a commitment of 20 plus hours per week. 

Candidates may present a portfolio of their creative work or a resumé of their sporting or artistic achievements. Performing arts candidates may present a singing, musical, dance or dramatic performance for assessment.
