Kelvinside Academy firmly believes that every talented child should be able to receive a Kelvinside Academy education and all the benefits and opportunities it presents. Kelvinside Academy offers a wonderful platform to develop academic, sporting, musical and artistic talents.
The KA Foundation are able to offer bursary funded places through the generosity of our former pupils, parents and friends. Bursaries are means-tested according to the family income and financial position of each applicant.
All those seeking admission to Kelvinside Academy can apply for a means-tested bursary but please note there is a finite amount of funding available each year and therefore not all applicants will be successful. When the overall level of assistance sought by applicants exceeds the total of funds available, awards will be determined by the candidate’s performance in the entrance assessments, school report and interview.
The KA Foundation provides bursary funds on an annual basis for pupils of potential, new to the School, who are unable to afford full fees. Such pupils will undergo the normal admissions procedure but, in addition, parents/guardians will be required to complete a Bursary Application Form providing details of their financial position. This form is sent out with the Prospectus and should be returned at the same time as the application for entry to the school. Applications for bursaries, from pupils who have successfully passed the normal selection procedures, are considered by the Awards Committee in February each year and parents informed in writing of the amount of the bursary awarded.
Help with fees (10-100%) may be awarded at entry to P7 and to all years in the Senior School.
All bursaries are reviewed annually by the Awards Committee and assume the continuing hard work and commitment of the recipient, and the maintenance of the parental contribution.
Applicants who wish to apply for a bursary should submit their application at the same time as submitting their application for a place.
For further information on bursaries, eligibility and the application process, please view the Bursary Information leaflet.
Bursary applications for Session 2017/18 are now closed.
