Sherborne School

    Sherborne offers means tested bursarial support with fees to boys entering the Third and Sixth Forms as both an extension of its scholarship programme, where successful applicants may apply for further support, and as a stand alone ‘open’ bursary scheme. In both cases, support of up to 100% of fees is possible according to the school’s discretion and the level of need. The school also offers a small hardship bursarial fund, although they note that priority is given to boys who are studying for public exams.
