We offer a range of scholarships for entry into Year 7, Year 9 and the Sixth Form. The following scholarships are available at all three entry levels (please click each for further information): AcademicArtDanceDesign & TechnologyDramaMusic and Sport.

The value of these awards ranges from 10% to 20% of the fees. We also offer an Academic scholarship which reflects both performance and potential. This award has a maximum value of 40%.


Pupils new to the School must make an application for a bursary at the time of application to the School. For existing parents whose financial circumstances change during the time their child is at School, individual representations can be made directly to the Headmaster and Bursar. Priority consideration is given to those pupils who are in the final year of a GCSE or A level courses, i.e. in Years 11 and 13. The vast majority of all bursarial awards are 50% or less for current pupils, and 30% or less for new pupils.

The Governing Body has ultimate responsibility for the awarding of all awards and will, as a matter of routine, delegate detailed analysis of bursarial applications to an external agency who will liaise directly with parents in the first instance. The award of all bursaries is also based on the extent to which the School considers that the individual pupil can contribute most to and gain most from the educational experience at Bethany. These are normally means-tested every year (on income and capital), to ensure the School is scrupulous about fairness. For more details please contact the Registrar or the Bursary.
