King Edward's School Home

An independent day school for boys aged 11 to 18

Academic scholarships

The school awards a considerable number of scholarships: in an average year about 20 scholarships are awarded, varying in value from 5% to 50% of the fees. Most of these scholarships are awarded at 11+, but awards are also made to outstanding candidates at 16+ and, very occasionally, at 13+. These scholarships are awarded purely on academic merit and potential, and scholars are chosen on the basis of their performance in the entrance examination and at interview. All scholarships are awarded for the duration of a boy's time at the School, subject to conduct and good progress. Each year five Foundation Scholarships are awarded to the best five candidates at 11+.
