At BGS we do not believe your income should be a barrier to your child’s education and ultimately their success in life.

We may be able to offer you financial assistance towards fees through our means-tested bursary scheme. Applications for assistance must be submitted in advance of the entrance examinations and assessments. An outline of when to submit is below:

Years 3–6: there are two main entrance assessment dates for Junior School applicants. These are in November and January. Any bursary application must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the assessment that your child is scheduled to attend.

Years 7 & Year 9: for September 2022 entry, all applications must be submitted by the 5 January 2022.

Sixth Form: For September 2022 entry, application must be submitted by 23 November 2021.

Invariably there are more applications than there are funds available, and academic merit is part of the assessment process. The number of awards made each year varies according to the calibre of applicants, and the levels of assistance offered. During the academic year 2021–22, 131 pupils throughout the School received bursaries with support varying between 10% and 100% depending on individual family circumstances. 

It is an objective of Bristol Grammar School’s Governing Board to raise additional funding and increase the level of bursary support, including for entry into the Sixth Form, for future years. 

In addition to the bursary support, the School has 177 pupils, throughout the Senior School and Sixth Form, who have been awarded Scholarships that include a fee remission. Scholarships are awarded on ability and talent. It is possible for a pupil, subject to the qualifying criteria, to receive both a Bursary and Scholarship.
