Bursaries will have a maximum value of 100% of the School Full Fee that would currently value them at £12,135. In addition to taking account of all relevant sources of income, the School takes account of relevant capital assets.Applicants should note the following: subject to your capital assets if your gross family income is below approximately £16,500 you may qualify for a full Bursary. If your gross family income is in excess of approximately £58,000 you would not qualify for any assistance. Between the two figures quoted above, a sliding scale will operate.The above scale is subject to annual review. Once awarded, the entitlement to a Foundation Bursary will remain with a pupil throughout his or her time at the School and will be reviewed annually. (please follow links to download Bursary Policy)
