Conditions for the Award of a Part Scholarship at KIS Sixth Form

Scholarships are available to all students applying for places in the Sixth Form and will be offered a part of the normal tuition fees.

Students applying for a scholarship at KIS Sixth Form must be able to demonstrate that they have the capacity to excel in their studies and have the necessary skills and qualities to make a positive contribution to the growth and development of the Sixth Form and the school as a whole.

The scholarships will be awarded based upon the quality of the application including:

• Academic Record

• The Interview

• The personal statement, outlining the skills, qualities and other achievements of the
applicant

• References from the current school

All candidates who wish to apply for a scholarship should also indicate as such by including a letter with their application form incorporating a clearly defined statement of need identifying relevant financial criteria that would support the decision to make such an award. KIS A Level Scholarships are intended to make our academic programme available to students from many different financial situations. Where appropriate the scholarship committee will consider details of family income, the number of family members in fee-paying education, medical expenses and any other factors detailed by the family when reviewing a scholarship application.

If a candidate fulfils all the necessary criteria, a provisional offer of a scholarship may be made at the same time as the offer of a conditional place in the Sixth Form, dependent on available school resources. KIS is not obliged to award scholarships, but will endeavour to accommodate applications as they are made. The offer of the place and the scholarship will be confirmed upon receipt of the candidate’s IGCSE (or equivalent) results.

The award of a scholarship and its continuance is reliant upon the student maintaining the attendance, standards and expectations of the school in every context. Failure to do so may result in the Scholarship Committee withdrawing the scholarship award.
