Day and Boarding Places
Financial assistance towards the payment of fees is available in cases of proven financial need and is not dependent on academic performance (other than to satisfy the school’s academic entry requirements). Bursaries, which may be up to 100% of fees, are awarded to pupils (from age 7+) who, it is believed, will gain most from a St John’s education and will contribute fully to the life of the School.
Decisions regarding bursary assistance are made by the Governors’ Bursaries Committee, advised by the Headmaster and Bursar. The Committee will consider each application, following an informal interview and scrutiny of the family’s financial circumstances which includes verifying the capital and current income available to meet fees. Awards are subject to annual means testing to allow for adjustment to reflect changed circumstances.
Choristers receive bursaries of between 66% and 100% of fees so that no child is prevented by financial reasons from taking up a choristership.
Parents of current or prospective pupils are most welcome to have an informal discussion about bursaries. Please contact the Bursar directly in complete confidence.
