Bursarial assistance (provided by the School’s Foundation and the City of London, usually to a maximum of 50% of the fees) is offered to families where boarding or the King Edward’s style of education is a particular need. Applicants must satisfy the normal academic criteria for entry. Examples of qualifying circumstances usually include some form of trauma in the family such as the loss of a parent, where one or both parents are seriously ill or where there is a chronically ill or disabled sibling demanding much attention and time, with the result that the parent is unable to devote enough time to the child’s needs. The children of clergy, missionaries and other special circumstances may also be considered.
The level of bursary awarded depends on the family’s total income and assets and need as outlined. Each case is assessed annually in the light of any changed circumstances and, whilst there is no undertaking to align any increases with any rise in the school fees, once awarded, a bursary normally applies for the duration of a pupil’s school career at King Edward’s.
Our objective is to ensure that assistance is sufficient to cover the child’s continuance at the School.
Strong links with the City Livery Companies and other charitable institutions enable us to recommend other sources of funding in cases of additional need. These can help raise the level of support for those in greatest need to something approaching 100% of fees.
Additional means-tested support is available to current pupils for some school trips and instrumental music lessons.
