The School is committed to helping as many young people as possible from all backgrounds to experience a St Edward’s education. Pupils applying to enter St Edward’s at 13+ (Shell, Year 9) or 16+ (Sixth Form, Year 12), whether applying for a Scholarship or not, are eligible to apply for means-tested fee support – a Bursary – which can be up to a total of 100% fee reduction. Applications for Bursaries should be made by 1st September in the year in which a pupil is applying to the School. Applications after 1st September will not normally be considered.
