Breakdown showing fee assistance for the last academic year’s intake into Year 7 and sixth form:
42% of pupils received some form of fee support. Out of these 23% had between 50% and 100% of their fees paid for, 77% had between 10 and 50% of their fees covered. This support comes from a mixture of scholarships and means-tested awards.
Bursary support with school fees
The bursary programme is designed to help as many as possible of those who meet our entry criteria to take up a place at St Dunstan’s. The College offers a number of means-tested awards annually to entrants at Year 7 and Year 12. As a means-tested award, both parents are required to provide proof of their income and assets. The level of support varies according to parental need, but can extend to full fee remission in cases of proven need. To qualify for consideration for a bursary, the gross family income must be below £55,000 per annum. Each case is assessed on its own merits and awards are made accordingly.
Every year, the number of bursary applicants greatly exceeds the amount of funding available. Bursaries are therefore awarded on the basis of academic merit.
Bursaries are only offered to families who are resident in the UK. The College’s practice is to allocate its entire bursary funding, available for the year, on entry. The College’s expectation is that parents who do not choose to apply for a bursary at the time that their child is being assessed, will not require financial support throughout the time that their child attends the College, except in wholly unforeseen circumstances.
To apply for a bursary, please tick the box on the registration form and the College Admissions team will send you a form which must be returned by the published deadline.
Academic Scholarships recognise and reward academic excellence.
All candidates sitting the Senior School Entrance Assessments are automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship. It is not possible to apply for an Academic Scholarship.
Candidates who perform particularly well in the assessments will be invited to attend an Academic Scholarship interview. At the same time, their parents will meet with a member of senior staff.
Co-Curricular Scholarships are available for Art, Drama, Music and Sport. A full contribution to the co-curricular life of the subject is required. Applications for co-curricular scholarships should be made through the online registration process.
In addition, there are a limited number of ‘Diploma Scholarships’ available for 16+ applicants. These are by invitation only. Scholarships are awarded between 5 and 50% fee remission and are held for the duration of a student’s time at the College, provided his / her conduct fulfils the expectations as stated in the Terms and Conditions of Acceptance.
