All bursary applications have to show that financial assistance with the payment of fees is needed.
Each year the need of applicants exceeds the funds we have for bursaries.
In attempting to reach fair and just decision, we keep in mind the charitable aims of Ampleforth and make judgements about those who will most benefit from the community of the school.
Hard and sometimes heartbreaking decisions have to be made.
New bursary applications are considered each year and decisions are usually made in March for students entering the school in the following September. It may be possible to give very general indications in advance, but these cannot be taken as assurances.
Once awarded each bursary is reviewed on an annual basis and parents are notified of the value of the award for the next academic year.
For further information about the procedures for the application and award of bursaries can be found in the School’s Bursary Policy and the Conditions of the Award of a Bursary.
