Hello. Does anyone know if any DD have been invited for scholarship or assisted place interviews. I’m not sure if it’s same as KES or whether they just send offers in December?

Hopefully this will help others,

I got a call a couple of week ago to come in for an interview as i had selected assisted place on the form. The meeting was with finance manger and was basically to discuss my form and to confirm if everything on the form was correct.

On the call and email confirmation was advised that i did not need to bring my DD in with me. When i arrived on the day there was a few parents with their DD's. (got me thinking)

When speaking to finance manager, she confirmed those with their children had potentially been offered scholarships and they were interviewing the kids, and we advised you not to bring your DD as this is for assisted place. (so I'm guessing if you have been invited without kids then it would be for assisted) The letter i got on the day suggests that DD done really well and has been considered for assisted place, however nothing is confirmed as they will look at all assisted places then decide at the end, role on December.

The meeting lasted no longer then ten mins and is nothing to worry about.

Now its a case of deciding on Handsworth Grammer (if they accept our first choice) or KEHS (if offered place)

Would love to hear from others in this situational.

Thanks

Historically KEHS have always been quite different to KES regarding interviews. KES have always liked to interview a high percentage of candidates whilst KEHS only interview a few potential scholarship candidates. The vast majority of KEHS offers are made without interviews.

Also KEHS scholarship funds are far lower than KES, plus the fact that both KEHS/KES decided a few years ago to divert some scholarship funds to assisted places funds.

Thank you KenR, that is very reassuring words to someone new.

I understand last year there was a gap of two weeks between some boys called for scholarship. So, no news might not be the bad news, just yet.

Ken, I am sure you are right about scholarship interview trend between KES and KEHS. The tutor we used previously for our boys, had 4 girls, out of the 6 she had, called for scholarship but only one boy so far this year- that may simply be down to the quality of cohort she had. I may be wrong, but I think they invite 'scholarship only' boys at the beginning and then 'scholarship/bursary' after a gap.
