The bursary fund was launched in 2007 in memory of Sally Walker, Deputy Head at the School from 1999-2002 and Headmistress from 2002-2005, to promote public benefit in providing the opportunities and advantages of independent education to all children. We believe our community is enriched by bursary children who bring a wealth of different viewpoints, talents and skills to the School.
The ideal bursary applicant will be a child who shows academic aptitude with an outstanding ability in one area of school life, who will benefit fully from the broad curriculum that Finton House offers and will have the ability to go on to further education. The whole family must be committed to supporting their child’s education.
Bursaries are available to children aged 7 or over on the 1 September of the year of entry (Year 3). The closing date for all application paperwork is 31 January of the year of entry. Awards are means tested and can pay for up to 100% of the fees for a pupil whose family is unable to meet the cost of independent school. This will depend on the family’s personal circumstances and are judged individually and will be reviewed annually.
Anyone interested in applying for a bursary should do so via OpenApply, or alternatively for an informal conversation you may contact the Registrar on 020 8682 5757.
