Bursarial Assistance

The Bursary Scheme is designed to assist families who for financial reasons might otherwise be unable to afford their child’s attendance at the School. The School has access to charitable funds for providing fee remissions for:

  • Foundation bursaries for children of Anglican clergy (Foundationers);
  • Bursaries for new pupils;
  • Hardship grants for current pupils whose family circumstances may change during their time at the School.

Bursaries may supplement the award of a scholarship or discount and are expressed as a percentage reduction of tuition fees, except in the case of Foundationer places where it may be deemed in the best interests of the child to weekly board. The total value of assistance awarded may be up to 100% of tuition fees. Support for additional educational expenses may also be available for Foundationers and those in receipt of a 100% bursary. 

All applications for bursarial support assume that the child will meet the School’s entry criteria or, if a current pupil, continue to meet the expected standards of achievement. 

All bursaries are means tested and are subject to annual review.  They may be withdrawn if parents' circumstances change during a pupil’s time at the School.

Please contact the Finance Office for further details or to request an application form.  Applications will only be considered in respect of children who are registered for entry.


Where further financial assistance is needed in excess of bursarial assistance, the School will support applications to other grant-making bodies. Further information is available from the Finance Office.
