Scholarship & Bursaries

Academic Scholarships

Academic Scholarships are offered to pupils of outstanding academic distinction based on the results of the Scholarship Assessment Examination. The Academic Scholarship Assessment generally takes place the first Saturday in November. Candidates will sit extension papers in English and Maths. An example of the level of questions candidates will be expected to answer can be provided.

A bursary is an amount by which school fees may be reduced.  Bursaries exist to deal with financial hardship and are primarily to ensure continuity of education for a pupil currently attending the School.  Such an award may be for as short a period as one term or it might extend for several years depending on proven need. Bursary awards can range from 10% upwards of the day fees and are subject to an annual review.

Bursaries will require full financial disclosure and verification, for example, of P60, bank and/or building society information and mortgage statements. All information is treated in strictest confidence and will be assessed by the School’s Finance Committee. Careful judgement is exercised in each case and the Committee’s decision is final.
