Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships

St Faith’s offers Academic Scholarships for children entering Year 3, and these are available for both internal and external candidates. There is no formal application procedure; children who perform very well in the Year 3 entry tests (external candidates) and regular assessments in their Year 2 class (internal candidates) will be invited to sit the scholarship papers. When awarding a scholarship, we will take in to account the results of these scholarships tests and the reference from the child’s current school. Scholarships are occasionally awarded to candidates who perform extremely well in the Entrance Tests for Years 4 to 8.  Academic Scholarship awards are normally between 10% and 30% of the full fees.

St Faith’s Bursaries

St Faith’s offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries to support pupils of the School where parental means would be insufficient to meet the fees in their entirety. Bursaries, on a sliding scale, are awarded to pupils who we believe will gain most from a St Faith’s education, and who will contribute fully to the life of the school. These Bursaries may apply to new applicants or to existing pupils whose financial circumstances have changed.

For more information about the application process, please contact the Bursar’s PA (bursarspa@stfaiths.co.uk) to arrange a meeting with the Bursar, Mr Richard Brent.
