There are two types of bursary funds in place to support boys at The Beacon; The Headmaster’s Bursary Fund and The Beacon Bursary Fund.
At The Beacon, we are proud of our tradition of offering means-tested bursaries to boys who we know will thrive at the School. The Headmaster’s Bursary Fund supports boys from disadvantaged backgrounds and enables them to join The Beacon in Year 3 (age 7) and experience all the opportunities that The Beacon education provides.
As the cost of an education at The Beacon grows, the number of requests for bursary support increases and, as with many independent schools, we rely on the generosity of our alumni, parents and friends to ensure that The Beacon retains its position as a true centre of excellence open to all.
The Beacon Bursary Fund is a registered charity (number 310643) that runs independently of the School. It aims to provide financial assistance for the education of pupils whose parents or guardians run into financial difficulties and may otherwise have to withdraw their son(s) from the School at a time that might be detrimental to their educational progress.
If you are in a position to give the gift of education to a child, please contact us. For most people, this is beyond reach during their lifetimes, however, a legacy of property or shares could help to make a very real difference to the life of a child in the future.
