Scholarships and Awards

Our Academic Scholarships and Drama, Music, Sport and Golf Awards are available to pupils in Lower Fourth (Year 7) and candidates new to the College in Lower Sixth (Year 12). They are highly prized and are designed to reward excellence and celebrate exceptional talent in a particular field.

Each year King William's College attracts high calibre applicants who enrich the School, not only in their specialist areas, but also in all facets of school life, and throughout their time at College we aim to provide each pupil with encouragement and tailored support to develop their talents and excel in their specialist area. In return, Scholars are expected to provide the School with intellectual and cultural leadership.

All scholarships are won in open competition and are awarded solely on merit. Each Scholarship is held from 1st September of the year of entry until the Scholar leaves the College, provided the pupil's work and conduct continue to be of the highest standard.

If a candidate applies for more than one Scholarship or Award the maximum reduction offered will not exceed 20% of the tuition fee. All scholarships can be underpinned by bursary assistance if the financial circumstances of the individual family necessitate it.
