Felsted has a long tradition of providing assistance with the cost of school fees to pupils whose families do not have the resources to cover the cost of their education, but who would gain great benefit from the educational experience that Felsted can offer.

Requests for financial support usually falls into one of the below four categories.

  1. Top-up Bursary: for applicants who have been awarded an Academic, Art, D&T, Drama, Music or Sport Scholarship, or a Mary Skill Award, but whose parents are unable to afford the full fees

  2. Open Bursary: for applicants whose families would otherwise be unable to consider the school due to their financial circumstances. Up to two open bursaries will be offered each year to day or boarding pupils entering Year 7, 9 and 12, who we consider will benefit most from the opportunity and who are in the greatest financial need. Up to 100% support is available dependent on financial means.

  3. Hardship Bursary: for existing pupils where an unforeseen change in parent circumstances has resulted in difficulty in meeting the full fees, and would otherwise result in the child being withdrawn part way through an academic stage of a Felsted education.

  4. Sibling Bursary: for families with four or more children in the School at the same time.

All bursary applications are reviewed on a means-tested basis. Further information can be found on the Bursary Policy or via our website www.felsted.org.
