Bursaries

Parents who wish to apply for a bursary will be asked by the School to complete a Confidential Statement of Financial Circumstances form.  The form is confidential and requires full information about the family’s financial circumstances, with supporting documentation. The school uses an independent company, Bursary Administration Ltd (BAL), to review and assess bursary applications.  Shortly after receipt of the application form BAL will arrange a home visit to talk through the financial circumstances form and discuss the application.  These visits are undertaken at the applicant’s home in a sensitive manner and all information is treated in the strictest confidence. The application and the BAL feedback will be submitted to the Bursary Committee at the School where a decision will be made about the value of the bursary that may be awarded. 

 

We can only formally consider an application for a bursary once we have assessed a child, and offered a place.

Removal by the School

Parents may be asked or required to remove their child from the school during or at the end of the term, temporarily or permanently if, in the school's opinion, such is in the interest of the child or school. In such circumstances fees for the remainder of the term will not be refundable.
