Winterfold offers a generous provision of means-tested bursaries and it is possible to apply for both a scholarship and bursary at the same time. Admissions Bursaries are offered at Year 5 entry. Bursaries are primarily for families living in the local area. Whilst assessing the bursary, all relevant sources of income and capital assets are taken into account. An element of your capital will be included in our assessment. Although each application is assessed individually and can depend on circumstances, as a guideline, a full bursary may be given to a family with a gross income of £25,000 or less, and then a sliding scale is in operation up to approximately £75,000. Please note however, that if school fees are being paid for siblings, these will be taken into account whilst assessing the award and could reduce assessable income.
Prospective parents should indicate their interest in a bursary on the School Registration Form and then complete the relevant bursary forms. All bursary applications need to have been received by 15th December and bursary awards are normally made with the offer of a School place by the end of February. Once awarded, the bursary will be reviewed on an annual basis.
