A bursary can pay for up to 100% of the fees for a pupil whose family is unable to meet the cost of independent school. The bursary fund was launched in 2007 in memory of Sally Walker, Deputy Head and Head of Special Needs at the school from 1999-2002 and Headmistress from 2002-2005. We believe our community is enriched by bursary children who bring a wealth of different viewpoints, talents and skills to the school.
Bursaries are available to children aged 7 or over on the 1 September of the year of entry (Year 3). The closing date for applications is 31 December of the year before entry. It is possible for more than one award to be made to the same family, at the discretion of the bursary committee.
Awards can provide a discount on fees, and can pay for uniform, clubs and educational visits. The amount of the award depends on the family’s ability to pay. If you apply, we will ask you to complete a financial means test and invite your child to visit the school for an Assessment Day. We will also come and visit you at home.
The ideal bursary applicant will be any child (including those with special needs), who is able and keen to learn, and who can benefit fully from the broad curriculum that Finton House offers. The whole family must be committed to supporting their child’s education now and in the future. Any award will be reviewed annually.
Anyone interested in applying for the bursary should contact the Registrar on 020 8682 5757 or by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
