    Bursaries
    The school has a total bursary pot of £500,000, and offers means-tested bursaries to existing and prospective students of the School, including scholarship students. The application process includes a financial declaration and a home visit. Pupil do not need to win a scholarship in order to be considered for a bursary.

    The Ian Austin Award is a dedicated, separate bursary fund for Sixth Form bursaries. For this, students need to demonstrate strong academic ability or impressive musical ability.

    Applications for bursary funding are looked at in the round, although a ballpark figure of £70,000 is given as a means-tested household income threshold. Families with significant investments or second properties are unlikely to be successful.
