Bursaries

Bursaries are means-tested and are available to children in our School (from Transition to Middle School - Ages 5 to 11).

At Dallington, we are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of schools fees.  Such support is known as a bursary and bursaries may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100 per cent on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants.

Bursary awards are subject to repeat testing of parental means each year and may be varied upwards or downwards, depending on parental circumstances. Awards are made on the basis of the confidential Dallington School scale of awards which sets out award levels in relation to a family's financial circumstances. The scale of awards is reviewed and revised annually by the bursar and School Accountant to reflect any changes in fee costs and is approved by the governors.

Though awards are generally tied to this scale, they may be varied upwards or downwards depending on individual parents'/guardians' circumstances (e.g. their savings, investments and realisable assets as well as their income, the size of their family, any other persons dependent upon them and like factors), compassionate or other pertinent considerations.

Requests for financial support usually fall into two categories:

  • New applicants to the school where a place has been offered but parents/guardians are unable to fund the tuition fees.
  • Existing pupils where a change in parents'/guardians' circumstances has resulted in difficulty in meeting tuition fees

If you wish to apply for a bursary for your child, please contact our Bursar Abi Hercules at abi.hercules@dallingtonschool.co.uk.  After an initial conversation, to progress an application, you will be asked to complete the forms below.
