Bursaries (Form III and above)
The Head and Governors are committed, where financial resources permit, to ensuring that the education offered to the children of fee paying parents is also made available to children whose parents would not otherwise be able to afford all or part of the fee through the provision of means-tested bursary assistance.
Bursary assistance up to 100% of the fee may be available to children joining the school in Form III or above. Applicants will be asked to demonstrate financial need by completing a Statement of Financial Circumstances. The final decision will be made by the Governors, after recommendation by the Finance Committee, of which the Head is a member. All bursaries are subject to annual review.
Fairfax Scholarships (Form III)
The Fairfax Scholarship, named after the school’s founder Ursula Fairfax-Cholmeley, is an academic scholarship open to both internal and external candidates entering Form III. Scholarships will be awarded at 10% of the school fee and will normally be provided for the whole of the remaining time that the child is at Longacre.
