Apply for a Bursary
The deadline for applying for a bursary for children entering Year 3 in September 2024 is Friday 19 January 2024.
The Blue Coat School has a Bursary Fund which supports up to 30 children at any one time. There are children benefiting from 100% fees discount, along with a number of smaller awards. The Awards are means tested and will take into account things such as your total household income, equity, number of siblings etc.
A 100% bursary will cover all school fees, a uniform allowance, plus two extra curricular activities e.g. a club or an instrumental lesson in school.
Entry to Year 3 is determined by an entrance test which assesses English and maths. You can also make an enquiry for future years by completing the form below. Please note, we cannot accept applications for children who are already Year 3 or above.
Following the entrance test, shortlisted applicants are invited for an informal meeting with a senior member of staff. In addition, you will have a meeting with a school representative, currently a member of Bursary Administration Limited.
