Scholarships (Hemery Awards)
Hemery Awards are available for entry in September 2019 into Years 7 and 8, for both internal and external candidates in Year 6. Details will be published during the Spring Term.
Community Bursary Awards
St Francis Community Bursaries are available for parents of external candidates who may have thought independent education was an unrealistic possibility.
Community Bursaries are aimed at encouraging boys and girls with genuine ability to join us at any point through the year. They are available from Reception, after free entitlement, through to Year 8. In addition to the child’s assessment, parents will be means tested by the school’s Bursar. These bursaries have a maximum value of 100% of the annual fees.
Families interested in applying for a Community Bursary should contact the Bursar, in the first instance, to ascertain if the school has a place available. They should then apply, in writing, with an overview of their financial and family circumstances. The Bursar will complete a preliminary review of the information provided to help determine eligibility and the level of potential funding.
Applications are assessed all year round and, depending on family circumstances, children may start at St Francis at the beginning of the autumn, spring or summer term.
