The Governors of The Beacon are committed to broadening access to the School by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of School fees. Such support is known as a Bursary, which is awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other relevant circumstances of applicants.
Requests for financial support usually fall into two categories:
The Educational Bursary Award covers some or all of the following according to financial need:
Awards are determined depending on individual parents’/guardians’ circumstances, for example their savings, investments and saleable assets, as well as their income, the size of their family, and any other persons dependant upon them. Further details are given via the links below.
Bursaries may be made available to parents/guardians of children wishing to enter The Beacon, normally in Year 3 or above. They are awarded at the discretion of the Governors, on the recommendation of the Headmaster and the Director of Finance & Operations, who are responsible for the management and coordination of the process. Other than the additional consideration of financial circumstances, the School’s Admissions Policy will be followed.
Completed forms, together with the necessary documentary evidence, should be returned to the Director of Finance & Operations by the end of the February half term for a bursary to start the following September. We will invite eligible pupil candidates to visit the School during the second half of the Spring Term, when they will be assessed for entrance. Parents will be notified before the start of the Summer Term regarding the success or otherwise of their application.
