Applying for the 100% Bursary Scheme

The first stage in the application process is to complete a Bursary Application Form and submit this to the Bursar. See download link below.

Initial selection will be based on the financial declaration on this form and eligible candidates will be invited to take the relevant entrance exams in January 2020 for entry in September 2020.

A report will be requested from a candidate's current School in advance of the examinations and interviews. Following assessment, all applications for 100% bursaries will be subject to comprehensive means testing.

Candidates selected for 100% bursaries will be notified in February and will not be identified within the School as benefiting from a bursary place.

All pupils in receipt of a bursary will have their academic progress and the family financial circumstances reviewed annually.

For further information or guidance on financial details please contact Will Ethelston, Bursar, tel: 01380 814512 or email: w.ethelston@dauntseys.org
