Fee assistance for talented students.
At Stamford we are proud of maintaining the wide socio-economic background of our students.
Life-changing bursaries are available for talented students who otherwise would not be able to afford the fees to attend our School, giving them the opportunity to benefit from a Stamford education.
Financial assistance is based on means-testing the household income and assets using a standard formula widely used within the independent schools sector.
Assistance with fees is available for students joining our Senior School in Years 7 to 13 and is means-tested, therefore the process will involve a home visit.
The vast majority of our bursaries are awarded to children joining us at the key entry points of Year 7 and Year 12. Other years of entry are considered by exception only.
Bursary applications should be submitted at the same time as you apply for a place.
All bursaries are reviewed annually, and the student’s suitability will be considered through an academic assessment as well as reviewing previous school results and the child’s school report.
Your Registrar will send you a link to our secure online application portal.
Once you have registered for the portal, you will need to complete an online form and upload copies of any financial documents. Bursary applications submitted after receipt of a place offer may not be considered.
Deadlines and decisions vary depending on year group - your Registrar will advise you of these. Please note that bursaries are not offered to students living overseas, unless in exceptional circumstances.
Stamford School has limited bursary funds for families who experience a sudden, unexpected change in their financial circumstances. This is subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.
If you need support in these circumstances, please get in touch with our Bursary and we can discuss.
