Scholarships and Bursaries

The College’s practice is to allocate its entire bursary funding, available for the year, on entry. The College’s expectation is that parents who do not choose to apply for a bursary at the time that their child is being assessed, will not require financial support throughout the time that their child attends the College, except in wholly unforeseen circumstances.

To apply for a bursary at 11+, 13+ or 16+, applicants need to tick the relevant box on the online registration form for the Admissions team to forward a Bursary Form.  Forms returned incomplete, without supporting documentation or after this deadline will not be processed.

Bursaries are means-tested and to qualify for consideration for a bursary, the gross family income must be below £75,000 per annum. Each case is assessed on its own merits and awards are made accordingly. Please note the school uses an independent company, Bursary Administration Ltd (BAL), to review and assess bursary applications.

Bursaries are only offered to families who are resident in the UK. Please note that the offer of a place to a Bursary Applicant may be conditional upon a home visit. 

The College respects the confidentiality of bursary awards made to families, therefore recipients are expected to do likewise.
