The School may consider applications for a Bursary from parents of students who have passed our Entrance Assessments and been offered a full fee paying place. Bursaries are highly competitive, and the School has a limited amount of funds available each year to support these. When considering applications, results from our Entrance Assessments and scholarship applications, along with interviews and references from your child’s current school are all reviewed. A financial appraisal is also undertaken.
