    The school awards up to eight Year 7 means-tested bursaries each year, the total value of which varies each year. These can have a value of up to 100% of school fees. Pupils do not need to apply for or win a scholarship in order to be considered for a bursary. 

    Income, assets and outgoings are considered when applying for a bursary, and each family is assessed individually. Bursaries are re-evaluated on an annual basis.
