    Bursaries at Mowden Hall are overseen by its membership of the Cothill Trust, which offers students entering in Year 5 or above up to 100 per cent means-tested fee remission. The process requires a full financial review of a family’s income, expenses, assets and liabilities, together with a home visit that is undertaken by a third party on behalf of the school. The key determining factor in the decision to award a bursary is need.

    The school also offers a flat fee reduction of 20 per cent to serving members of the armed forces who are in receipt of CEA. For more information as well as a link to its bursary policy and how to apply, please see its website:
