Bursaries are offered to broaden access to the School by offering, to eligible parents of gifted young people, some financial support with fees. Bursaries are only available to Senior School pupils. 

Parents who wish to apply for a bursary should request a bursary application pack from the Bursar’s office, 

A bursary application must be completed and returned to the Bursar’s office no later than Friday, 18 November 2022. Applications for bursaries will not be considered after this date. If posting your application, we recommend using recorded delivery.

Bursary applications are only considered if a registration form has also been completed via our website. 

Applicants undertake the assessments relevant to the year group they are applying for. Some applicants will then be invited to an interview with the Headmaster and other senior staff. Home visits will also be conducted in January 2023.

All offers of a place at St Benedict’s School alongside a decision on bursary applications will be posted on Thursday, 9 February 2023.

Bursary awards are subject to annual testing, which may result in the bursary being varied upward or downward depending on parental circumstances.

The above should be read in conjunction with the Bursary Policy.
