Bursaries

Manor House School has a long history of providing financial assistance to pupils and families in need and the resultant diversity in pupil population is seen by the School as an important component of a full and balanced education.

Means tested bursaries are awarded on an annual basis and may include a small amount to assist with additional costs such as uniform, where appropriate. Manor House School remains committed to the aim of providing public benefit in accordance with its founding principles and legislative requirements.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR A BURSARY?

You are eligible to apply for a bursary if you are considering sending your daughter to the school and she has been through the application process and successfully been offered a school place.  You will also be eligible if your daughter is already at the school but your family circumstances have changed and you find the fees are no longer affordable.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A BURSARY AND WHEN WILL I FIND OUT IF MY APPLICATION IS SUCCESSFUL?

Bursaries are awarded in the first quarter of the year for the subsequent academic year, and should be applied for by the preceding first half of the Autumn term. For example, an application should reach the School Bursar by 1 November 2022 for bursary awards that will be notified in the first quarter of 2023 and applicable to the academic year starting September 2023.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application after the third week of January following the Senior Entrance Examinations. In summary:

  • Bursary applications deadline: 1 November 2022.
  • Outcome of all bursary applications: Third week of January 2023 onwards.
  • Bursary award applicable from September 2023.

HOW IS IT DETERMINED WHO IS OFFERED A BURSARY?

All applications for bursaries are means tested using primarily the financial information provided in the application form however all prospective pupils are required to comply with the School’s normal entry requirements and be offered a place.

If you feel your daughter would benefit from an education at Manor House School and that she would be able to contribute to school life but the school fees are beyond your means, please contact the Director of Finance on c.minikin@effinghamschools.org for more information.
