Each year Benenden School can offer one or more places for a girl to enter the Fourth Form (11+ or Year 7). Each place may be fully funded – that is to say up to 100% of school fees, subject to means-testing.
The 11+ Fourths Award is open only to girls attending one of the following local primary schools, located within a 7.5 mile radius of Benenden School.

16+ Founders Award
(previously the Sixth Form Trust Award programme)
Each year Benenden School can offer one or more places for a pupil to enter the Sixth Form (16+ or Year 12). Each place may be fully funded – that is to say up to 100% of school fees, subject to means-testing. In addition to covering fees, if necessary, all school uniform costs would be covered and an allowance paid to cover two extra activities per term, eg musical instrument tuition, sports coaching, or extra drama, etc. The successful candidate would be expected to complete her education with us.
Applicants for the 11+ Fourths Award and 16+ Founders Award do not need to pay the Registration Fee.
Details of the 11+ Fourths Award and 16+ Founders Award programmes can be obtained separately from the Registry.
Continuity of Education Allowance supplement Bursary Award
Candidates who are in receipt of the UK government Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) for Service or Diplomatic Children may seek additional bursary support from Benenden via a means-tested bursary application. Bursary awards in these cases may typically be worth 10% of fees. To assist with forward planning, we will be pleased to consider such bursary requests at any time after Registration.
