Pupils who are awarded an academic scholarship will be the intellectual leaders of their cohort, they will be highly curious of the world around them and have a proven track record of achieving excellence across a range of subjects.
For all internal Year 6 pupils moving from the Radnor House Sevenoaks Prep School to the Senior School, the results of their Senior School (Year 7) entrance academic assessment will be used to award academic scholarships.
All external candidates who sit the Year 7 and Year 9 admissions process are automatically considered for an academic scholarship and decisions will be based on the outcome of the admissions tests, interview and reference.
Candidates do not need to complete a separate application for an academic scholarship and there is no further assessment to complete.
Sixth Form Academic Scholarships
For Internal Year 11 pupils, the offer of a Sixth Form Academic Scholarship will be made in March/April of Year 11 to those pupils who show considerable academic potential. Awards will be based on performance in the GCSE Mock Examinations, November Assessments and overall performance in Behaviours for Learning. The school will increase this to an Outstanding Academic Scholarship, worth a minimum of 20% off the tuition fees, if the pupil achieves an outstanding set of results.
For External Sixth Form applicants, they will be considered for an academic scholarship (worth 10% off the tuition fees) which is based on their GCSE results and an Outstanding Academic Scholarship (worth 20% off the tuition fees) if the pupil achieves an outstanding set of results.
Scholarships will be reassessed annually, and their continuance is subject on the successful candidate exhibiting satisfactory commitment and attitude towards their own progress.
