Scholarships and Bursaries

Bursaries

We have a Bursary Scheme in place for pupils joining the College at Year 7 and Sixth Form entry. The objective of the Bursary awards is to provide financial support to parents of children who would otherwise not be financially able to send their children to the College. As such, all awards are subject to a system of means testing that covers family income levels as well as other investments and capital assets. Bursaries of up to 100% of termly fees are available, however the level of bursary awarded is dependent upon individual financial circumstances. Appropriate financial support for uniform and major College co-curricular trips may also be available in order to ensure that full integration and access to the curriculum is maintained. All information shared is confidential.

If you believe that you may be eligible please contact the Bursary for details on bursary@abbeygatecollege.co.uk.
