The Board of Governors is committed to supporting deserving pupils through a mean-tested ‘bursary scheme’. Bursary awards are made in terms of a % remission (money off) of the full fee and they are assessed according to the parents’ ability to pay full fees and the availability of bursary funds in the School. Parental assets and income are assessed and bursaries may be awarded up to 100% of the full fee but most will be at a lower level. While not linked to specific levels of achievement such as with a scholarship, any bursary award is based on the understanding that the pupil will by his/her application, behaviour and involvement in the School community merit such an award on an ongoing basis. Should the pupil’s application, behaviour or involvement fall below the standards expected, the School reserves the right to remove the award. Bursaries are reviewed on a regular basis whereby parents are required to resubmit details of their financial situation to ensure that they still merit an award.
Parents of a pupil awarded a scholarship who remain unable to afford the fees, are also entitled to apply for a bursary. Scholars who merit an additional bursary award will take precedence over non-Scholars.
Bursary applications should be made in writing to the Bursar who will request that the parent/s complete a Bursary Application Form and provide documentary evidence to support it.
Bursary applications for current pupils can be made at any time as the result of an unforeseen change in the family financial situation which leads to a genuine difficulty which would necessitate the removal of the pupil.
