    Bursaries
    Westbourne House offers means-tested bursaries of up to 100 per cent of fees to children who are talented in academics, music, sport or a combination of the three but whose parents would otherwise be unable to afford the fees. These awards are available to pupils entering between Years 4 and 7 and are subject to a full financial review.

    All applicants sit an assessment in English, Maths and cognitive abilities, as well as their area of specialism. They are expected to either possess strong academic ability or show much potential. Click below for further details:
