Scholarships and Bursaries


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 5% 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, 01223 229419, to arrange a meeting with the Bursar, Mr Richard Brent.

Please note that the deadline for submission of Bursary Applications for entry into Years 3-8 is 31 October in the academic year preceding entry to the school (for example 31 October 2023 for entry in September 2024). In very exceptional circumstances, Bursary Applications may be considered for entry into Pre Prep.  In those cases the deadline for submission of a Bursary Application is 31 March in the calendar year preceding entry to the school, (for example 31 March 2023 for entry in September 2024).
