The Governors of St Christopher’s 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 and this may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 50% on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants.
Bursaries may be made available to parents/guardians of children entering Reception, Year 1 or Year 2. Parents/guardians seeking a bursary are required to complete the School’s Registration Form and a bursary application form which seeks to establish the financial circumstances of the household.
Bursaries are also available to existing parents/guardians in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 where a sudden and significant change in the financial circumstances of parents/guardians has resulted in difficulty meeting the tuition fees. Applications from current parents will only be considered in cases where parents’ financial circumstances have deteriorated significantly since they enrolled their child at the School and this deterioration could not have been anticipated at the time they were enrolled. Parents/guardians seeking a bursary are required to complete a bursary application form which seeks to establish the financial circumstances of the household.
All bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the Governors, and the Headteacher and School Bursar are responsible for the management and coordination of the process. All bursaries are means tested and have terms and conditions.
All bursaries may be withdrawn in accordance with the terms upon which such award is made or in accordance with the Bursary Policy.
All applications are treated in the strictest confidence and applicants would be expected to exercise the same discretion.
