    Bursaries
    Dragon School offers a number of fully funded bursaries to talented applicants who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend the school. These awards are means tested and awarded at the discretion of the school.

    They also offer an Armed Forces Discount for those in receipt of the CEA; a discount of 20% of fees will apply if Dragon boarding begins in the junior years (Years 4 to 6). Once awarded, the discount will continue through to, and inclusive of, Year 8 as long as the child continues to board and the family remains in receipt of the CEA grant.

    Dragon School also offers a 7.5% discount against boarding fees to parents who are employees of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office who are also in receipt of the CEA grant and whose children enter the School to board in Years 4 to 6 inclusive. Once awarded, the discount will continue through to, and inclusive of, Year 8 as long as the child continues to board and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office employee remains in receipt of the CEA grant.
