Foundation Pupils – Category B
Funding would essentially be for pupils who would benefit from coming to a School like King Edward’s Witley (academically or pastorally) but would not secure other third-party funding in addition to the King Edward’s Foundation Bursary. It is unlikely that we will consider an application if the total family income is more than £50,000 before tax, unless there are special circumstances. This option would be used for:
- Day pupils, but not exclusively.
- The pupil would have to complete the “Potential to Benefit” assessment, which is often easier when the pupil application has been completed. This considers the total application from the pupil – entrance test results, interview report and possible scholarship application.
- The total award of a scholarship will be capped at a total of 50% funding from King Edward’s Witley. The decision is to be made/confirmed by the Bursary Awards Committee considering the total application from the pupil – entrance test results, interview report, level of scholarship, and bursary application.
- Since other/third party funding is not expected, there must be some family income to be able to afford the likely shortfall in fees
