(Also known as Bursaries)
We are keen that everyone who wishes to benefit from an education at the College and is able to meet our entry requirements has the opportunity, regardless of social background or financial circumstances.
Bishop's Stortford College is not a richly endowed school. However, our charitable trust status allows us to ensure that access to the education we offer is as wide as possible.
Financial Assistance Awards form the backbone of the assistance on offer. They are awarded according to need and are based on means-testing.
If your child demonstrates the academic potential to meet our entry requirements and benefit from the College’s education, but your household income is not sufficient to pay the fees, we may be able to help.
Financial Assistance Awards range from partial assistance of 5% up to 100% of the full fees. The number of awards which can be made each year is limited and therefore we need you to submit your application for a Financial Assistance Award by the same deadline as for your application for a place. Please be assured that the two applications are assessed entirely separately.
