The Scheme is designed to assist parents or prospective parents on low incomes who for financial reasons might otherwise be unable to send or continue to send their child to the School.
Parents, who will need a bursary to allow their child to attend Red House, if offered a place, are urged to speak to the Head of Finance & Compliance at an early stage and to complete the bursary application form.
Bursaries are means tested and are awarded on an annual basis to parents who are financially eligible and who meet the application requirements set out in the Bursary Policy found on our policies page. Due to the limited financial resources of the School, not all applications may be successful. The amount available for allocation will vary from year to year and consequently the School retains an absolute discretion as to the number of awards each year.
Bursaries may be made available to parents of children in or entering the Senior School at Red House School (see the School’s Admissions Policy on the policies page). However, no bursary can be offered unless/until the applicant has first satisfied the School’s academic requirements in order to be offered a place (for application details please contact the Head of Admissions, Mrs Claire Bellerby, on 01642 558119).
Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the Management Committee of the Board of Governors together with the Head and Head of Finance and Compliance, who are responsible for the management of the Bursary application process.
No action will be taken on the form until the academic assessment process is complete. For prospective pupils, the deadline for applications is February in the year of entry and applications will be assessed at the meeting of the Management Committee during the Spring Term.
Parents are advised in writing whether their child is to be offered a place at the School and of the bursary offer.
All bursary applications are treated in the strictest confidence. Pupils will not be made aware that they benefit from a bursary unless informed by their parents.
