Bursaries at St Augustine’s Priory are means tested awards offered to academically exceptional candidates, at the 11+ and 16+ entry points, who meet the School’s admission criteria but may otherwise be unable to attend the School due to financial hardship.  Bursaries up to a maximum of around 75% may be offered depending on individual circumstances. If you are interested in applying for a bursary, as a first step, please complete our Bursary Enquiry Form from the September before your child would potentially join the school, i.e. complete the enquiry form in September 2023 if you are looking at September 2024 entry.  Please note that you should complete the enquiry form at least one week before the registration deadline date. Please note that the bursary enquiry form is not a bursary application form it is an initial enquiry form. A member of the Admissions Team will be in touch once your enquiry has been reviewed.
