Sport scholarships in Years 7, 9 and 12 are awarded on the basis of individual assessment by the Head of Sport, and recommendation to the Head Master.
What is expected of me?
We are looking for students who can offer two major sports to a high standard or any one sport to an exceptionally high standard. The list of sports below is a guide and should not preclude any candidate who has reached an exceptional standard in another sport that is not on the list. A high level of ability and obvious potential will be of most importance. Major sports – boys: Hockey, Rugby, Cricket and Tennis. Major sports – girls: Hockey, Netball and Tennis.
What will be asked of me?
You will be asked to attend a practical test which will include the following:
Boys – Cricket, Hockey, Rugby, Running, Tennis and Fitness Testing.
Girls – Hockey, Netball, Rounders, Running, Tennis and Fitness Testing.
Once you have completed the practical test there will be an interview with the Director of Sport. We may also take the opportunity to assess you in your own sporting environment. A portfolio, which should include testimonials or references from sports coaches, is essential to support your application. The Physical Education
Department welcomes the opportunity to meet informally with parents and prospective candidates at any time before the formal assessments.
What are the benefits of a sports scholarship at Kent College?
We boast a number of top performance coaches on our staff and you will receive top-class coaching in your chosen sport(s). In addition, we provide support in all areas of athletic development e.g. nutrition, conditioning, injury prevention.
What do I have to do to maintain my scholarship?
We expect you be a leader in sport. Sport scholars are required to play for school teams in our major sports, to represent the school as required and to attend all team practices. All Sport scholars must fulfil the academic requirements of the school. We expect our sports scholars to make progress during their time at Kent College in all aspects of physical education
