Impact Statement

This year, Kingswood School has continued to support a widening network of partner-schools in the state sector. As well as inviting academic staff to attend joint training and development sessions, a Teach Meet was hosted at the School for staff to share best practice. A number of staff from other schools attended.

A Netball Festival is being hosted this year and over 80 state-school students are expected to attend.

A Drama partnership has been formed with a nearby state school which involved 9 students from Y9 putting on a joint production hosted at Kingswood.

A number of students from local area partner schools have attended the School for Academic enrichment, Mock Oxbridge interviews (and coaching) and exam sessions - this has contributed to two students gaining entrance to Oxbridge.

The School continues to develop strong links with local area state schools for sporting events and matches, and shares facilities for coaching and fixtures.

We loan science equipment to local state schools for their STEM programme, and a student has recently coached a state primary school student in Mathematics as part of the Gifted and Talented programme.

57 state school students attended a musical recital; the Theatre was given to a state school for their drama performance; 149 Year 6 students from local state schools attended the School's Christmas production and on-going support has been offered to schools to assist them with their marketing, in particular social media. Additionally, GDPR and MIDAS training has been given to staff at partner schools.

Scholarships

A wide range of scholarships are available each year for entry to Years 7, 9, and 12. The awards are made in recognition of excellence in Academic ability, Art, Drama, Design & Technology, Music, and Sport. A John Wesley Scholarship to recognise potential in all-round contribution to school life is also available for boarding students. You can download a copy of our Scholarships and Bursaries 2020 information. 

Scholarships for Year 12 normally take place in November, Year 7 in December and Year 9 in February in the school year preceding entry.

Bursaries

In keeping with the Christian ethos and traditions of the School, the Headmaster and Governors seek to provide financial assistance to families where it is felt that a particular child would benefit from the type of education Kingswood provides and where there is a proven genuine need. All bursary applications are means-tested for eligibility and assessed by the Bursar and Headmaster.

Bursaries are not available for children attending Kingswood Preparatory School unless there are very exceptional circumstances. Parents who wish to be considered for bursarial support should complete the Financial Statement Form which can be requested by emailing the Bursar at bursar@kingswood.bath.sch.uk.

The completed form should be submitted in confidence, together with any relevant supporting information, for assessment by the Bursar. As no awards can be made after an offer is made, we encourage families who feel they may be eligible for bursarial support to discuss the matter with the Registrar and/or the Bursar well in advance of making a formal application for entry and before any assessment papers are taken.
