Any further funding required once a scholarship is awarded is means-tested in the form of a bursary.

Bursaries are means-tested and designed to offer financial assistance in exceptional circumstances to lower income households to either start at a school or remain at school if the family’s circumstances change. A bursary is an amount of money granted to make up the shortfall between what the family can afford and what the fees actually are. If you apply for a bursary you will need to provide the school with comprehensive details of your family’s financial position and be prepared for this to be reviewed at regular intervals.

“The school is successful in providing opportunities for pupils of all abilities to gain academic success and develop their individual talents.”
