    Brambletye offers two Foundation Bursary awards each year to pupils entering the school aged between seven and 11. These are means-tested and require a full financial review and history. In spring term, the school runs an assessment day to test candidates’ academic suitability; they are given papers in maths and English, as well as a verbal reasoning test and an interview.

    The school also offers fee reductions of 15 per cent to children of members of the armed forces and the Foreign Office, as well as a merit-based scholarship scheme. For more information about these awards, please see the school’s website:
