The Dauntsey's 100% Bursary Scheme

Dauntsey's School operates a 100% Bursary place scheme open to 11+, 13+ and 16+ entry.

The scheme has been approved by Governors to widen access to the excellent education and development opportunities offered by Dauntsey's to children whose parents could never ordinarily contemplate private education on financial grounds.

It is intended to offer up to three places annually to a total of 21 available places. Selection for a 100% bursary place will mirror the usual admissions process for pupils applying for 11+ entry. Those applying for Third Form and Sixth Form entry will be asked to sit papers at the School (details to be confirmed)

The bursary will cover all boarding or day fees and, depending on financial circumstances, will also provide funding for other specific essential academic activities. Parents will, however, be asked to make a contribution towards costs that they would normally incur in providing for their children. Individual tuition costs for music lessons and sports coaching and any specialist learning support lessons will be subject to a separate charge.

Bursaries for existing pupils

These are given each year to assist in cases of sudden, unforseen financial need. Parents or guardians with a child at School whose financial circumstances suddenly change may apply for a bursary. Such awards are subject to the availability of funding.

Scholarship Supplements

These are available to those who have been offered a scholarship or an award and are subject to means testing. If you would like to apply for a Scholarship Supplement or require more information please contact the Bursar.
