Success here may result in an increase in the value of the award.

The testing for an Academic Award consists of written papers in English, maths and verbal reasoning. There will also be an interview. Candidates will be asked to provide reports from their present schools.



Testing for Sports Awards consists of a practical aptitude test in several sports and an interview. Candidates’ present schools will be asked to provide a letter of recommendation giving details of past sporting achievements and involvement.



Candidates will be asked to show achievement (Grade 3 – 4 is a good guideline) and potential in one instrument. Competence on a second instrument is welcomed. Candidates are encouraged to offer singing.

Auditions will consist of two contrasting prepared pieces on voice or first instrument, another prepared piece on the second instrument if offered, an aural test and a study piece given to the candidate half an hour before performance. There will also be an interview.

Music Award holders will receive free tuition in up to two instruments at King’s Hall.

Music Scholars are expected to play a full role in all the school’s musical activities.

We provide small classes led by enthusiastic, knowledgeable and caring staff and our children progress to King’s College well equipped for their GCSEs and the exciting challenges ahead.

For more information, please contact Mrs Tess Spurr, our Admissions Assistant, by email or telephone 01823 285928. Families are encouraged to visit both King's Hall School and King's College and can contact Tess to arrange visits.
