Frequently Asked Admissions Questions
1: If you decide you would like your child to apply to Warwick School please complete the online application form. At the same time the non-refundable registration fee of £100 is required (£175 for boarding), payable by bank transfer (please use your son's name as reference). A copy of your son’s birth certificate should be uploaded within the application (mandatory) and his most recent school report (currently optional).
2: Nearer to the date details about the Entrance Examination day will be sent to you.
3: After sitting the Entrance Examination all candidates are invited for a short interview. However, where performance in the entrance examination is deemed worthy of consideration for a scholarship, this will take the form of a scholarship interview and a day at school, for which a separate invite will be issued. There is no separate scholarship examination.
Candidates invited in for a scholarship or bursary interview are not required to have an assessment interview.
4: An offer of a place or a rejection is generally issued three or four weeks after the examination day, along with any offer of a scholarship or bursary. When the offer is sent out, a deadline is given for acceptance of the place and at this stage a deposit of £500 to secure the place is required (deposit amounts may vary depending if financial support is offered).
We strive to ensure a fair and consistent policy to all applicants. Details above may vary for the different age groups that apply.
Warwick Schools Foundation is the Governing Body for Warwick Junior School, Warwick School, Warwick Preparatory School, King’s High School, and The Kingsley School.
The Foundation allows us to better share resources and enables us to offer unique extracurricular activities, 'best of both worlds' environment and other exciting opportunities.
Essentially a scholarship is based on academic performance (or an exceptional level of achievement in the case of a Music Scholarship), whilst a bursary is based on financial need and is means tested.
You can learn more about our scholarships & bursaries here.
The discount on school fees available for each child is calculated by an income means test.
Your child will then be expected to pass an assessment or entrance exam, which for the Senior School takes place in November and attend an interview, before a place can be offered. Help is also available to meet the cost of uniforms and educational school trips where necessary.
You can call us confidentially on 01926 776414 to discuss the opportunity further, or register your details on our enquiry form and we will contact you.
The Foundation does not offer any sibling discounts at this time.
There is no absolute limit on the number of discounted places for pupils because the levels of financial assistance vary from child to child. However there is a limited amount available and this is therefore allocated based on means testing, the results of the entrance examination, previous school reports, and interview.
The assistance is provided on a graduated scale; therefore small changes in your income will have a correspondingly small effect on the assistance you receive.
Yes - subject to the good conduct and progress normally expected of a pupil, and an annual means test re-assessment.
The school will notify you when you are required to provide new information about your income in preparation for the next school year. We ask that you tell us about any changes that will significantly affect your current financial circumstances in the meantime.
