Foundation Scholarships

Foundation scholarships are academic awards for academically capable pupils. They are jointly awarded by King’s and Hazlegrove (prep school in the King’s Bruton Foundation) to students in Year 6, and apply for the final two years of Hazlegrove (Years 7 & 8) and all five years at King’s.

Conditions of Entry:

Foundation Scholarships are open to all applicants, whether at Hazlegrove or other schools. The support of their current school is required when applying for entry. They are contingent upon a pupil joining (or remaining at) Hazlegrove for Year 7 and remaining at King’s throughout their five senior school years. Entry into or possession of a Foundation scholarship does not preclude students from entering for 13+ Scholarships and awards at King’s but the Foundation Scholarship would be subsumed by any larger award.

Application Process:

The assessments are set by Hazlegrove and are sat in the February of Year 6. The deadline is usually one to two weeks prior to the assessment day. Candidates are assessed in English (comprehension and essay), Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. Awards are offered jointly by the two schools but the financial award is provided by King’s. The value of the awards and the number offered are at the discretion of the Headmaster of King’s School. Usually they are for 5 or 10% of the fees and about 4 awards are offered. Applicants do not need to register for King’s in advance of entering for a Foundation Scholarship but they need to register in order to accept a Scholarship if offered. Further information about Foundation Scholarships can be obtained from Fiona O’Neill the Head of Admissions at Hazlegrove Prep School; 01963 442606.
