    Bursaries
    St Swithun’s offers bursary awards at 11+, 13+ and 16+ of up to 100 per cent of fees, decided by financial review and reassessed annually. Students in receipt of a bursary are expected to make good academic progress but are not selected beyond the normal entry requirements for the school.

    In 2019 St Swithun’s relaunched the Bramston Bursary Foundation, specifically for girls in or on the edge of the care system. The Foundation aims to offer 100 per cent bursaries and works alongside local authorities and charities. 

    The school also offers a number of 20% boarding bursaries to new regular HM Armed Forces families drawing CEA and joining the school.
