Bursaries & Scholarships

Scholarships

Kent College offers a range of Scholarship opportunities at Year 7, Year 9 and for Sixth Form, available for Academic, Sport and the Creative Arts – Art, Dance, Drama and Music.

Scholarship awards are 10% of net day fees, made to pupils demonstrating a particularly high standard of achievement or potential regardless of financial need. They will normally be held for the duration of a girl’s time at Kent College, subject to satisfactory performance and commitment.

Scholars at Kent College are allocated a dedicated staff supervisor with whom they meet regularly. Their supervisor helps them to balance the demands on their time, their expectations and those of their teachers and the wide range of commitments that many of our scholars have.

Bursaries

Bursary support may be awarded in addition to Scholarships to enhance fee reduction. Bursary funds are available if parents can demonstrate, through a means-testing procedure, that they would not otherwise be able to send their daughter to Kent College due to limited financial means.
