We wish to ensure that Gosfield School is accessible to as many pupils as possible who would benefit from an education here. Therefore, any prospective pupil from a low-income family is eligible to apply for a Bursary to obtain means-tested financial support in respect of school fees. Bursaries do not preclude pupils from also holding a scholarship award.
Bursaries can be offered to new pupils and those who are already in the school and whose families have suffered sudden and unexpected financial hardship.
When applying, parents must indicate in a separate letter that a bursary may be needed. A bursary application form can be downloaded here and this should be completed and returned. It will be treated in strict confidence.
The bursary application will be reviewed by the Finance Committee. The granting of a bursary is discretionary and in making its decision, the school considers a wide range of appropriate matters including, but not limited to, parental/guardian income (from all sources), assets (including personal property), other matters that are particular to the pupil such as family circumstances, availability of places in the year group and the ability of the pupil to fully access our curriculum. All bursaries are reassessed annually and all bursary recipients are expected to maintain the high standards expected of them and continue to be a credit to the School.
Bursaries available at Gosfield School comprise:
