Bursary Policy

The Cothill Trust bursary policy has been authorised by the Trustees and forms part of the Trust’s Public Benefit Strategy. The aim of the policy is to ensure that prospective and current parents/guardians are aware of the bursary provision and the process by which they can apply. The Trustees are committed to assisting access to the Trust’s schools by offering means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as a Bursary and these may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% of the day tuition fees, depending on the financial circumstances of applicants. 

Please find below the Trust Fee Remissions and Bursary policy. The term ‘parents’ used throughout the document refers to both parents and guardians who are legally responsible for the child concerned.

Bursaries are means-tested and awarded on an annual basis to parents who satisfy the financial criteria as set by the Trust in relation to their income and capital assets. The level of a bursary is determined by the extent of financial need and therefore applicants are required to complete a Bursary Application Form. Where there is no financial need, no bursary will be granted. Applicants must be in or entering, Year 5 or above in order to be awarded a means-tested bursary. 

A range of factors is considered in making the awards and as a result, the number and size of bursaries can vary considerably. In considering the financial need of an applicant, the level of income and capital assets are taken into account. Relevant personal circumstances of the parents and those of the child may also be taken into consideration.
