Duke of Kent School nurtures and celebrates the talents and gifts of our pupils. Our School is a purposeful environment where pupils embrace all of the opportunities before them and specialise in areas where they are particularly adept.
We have a small but broad Scholarship programme which supports this ethos through the recognition of exceptional ability in the fields of Academia, Music, Performing Arts, Art. Computer Science and Sport as well as that of All-Rounders who excel across a range of disciplines.
Further information on scholarships can be obtained from our Registrar, Mrs Jane Hopwood on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board of Governors is committed to broadening access to the School by offering to eligible parents means tested support for the payment of school fees.
A bursary is an amount by which school fees may be reduced. Bursaries exist to deal with financial hardship and are primarily to ensure continuity of education for a pupil currently attending the School. Such an award may be for as short a period as one term or it might extend for several years depending on proven need. Bursary awards can range from 10% upwards of the day fees and are subject to an annual review.
Bursaries will require full financial disclosure and verification, for example, of P60, bank and/or building society information and mortgage statements. All information is treated in strictest confidence and will be assessed by the School’s Finance Committee. Careful judgement is exercised in each case and the Committee’s decision is final.
Please contact the Finance Manager, Mr Nick Tearle, on email@example.com if you would like to apply for a Bursary.
At Duke of Kent School, we offer sibling discounts to the third concurrent child (15% fee discount) and subsequent concurrent children (30% fee discounts).
