Abingdon offers a fairly small but well-implemented bursary scheme that also covers new students entering Years 7 and 8, with 59 families across the school receiving up to 100 per cent day-fee remission in 2019-20. Overseen by the school’s bursary panel, the awards are means-tested and cover the teaching costs of an education at Abingdon, lunch and most books and materials. It is worth noting that boarding fees and some additional charges, such as trips, are not covered.
Bursaries are not academically selective – although pupils must meet the baseline academic standards for acceptance – but are only available to UK families, which is defined more precisely on the school’s website:
