The school recognises that there are children who wish to come to Bryanston but whose parents would find it hard, if not impossible, to pay the fees.

The Governors have always sought to help parents with modest means to send their children to Bryanston, and this determination remains. The funds that support this ambition are limited – but growing with the assistance of the school’s active Development Department.


How to apply

In order to ensure that these limited funds are distributed equitably, all applicants are asked to complete a standard “Statement of Financial Circumstances”. The information given in this application forms the basis of a discussion between the Bursar, Finance Bursar and the parents, and contributes to a decision made by the Bursary team and the Headmaster as to the availability and size of bursary assistance.

Criteria for a bursary 

The criteria for a bursary, in addition to financial need, are:

  • that the prospective pupil will fulfil the academic requirements for the appropriate year of entry;
  • that the prospective pupil will engage in the whole life of the school; 
  • that the parents, the prospective pupil and the Headmaster agree that attendance at the school will be a positive experience for the pupil; and
  • the balance of fees due and other extras will be paid by the due date for payment.

A bursary can stand alone as assistance, or it can be supplementary to the assistance offered by a scholarship award. All bursaries are reviewed annually and are subject to the school’s terms and conditions.

The Sandroyd/Bryanston Bursary

A single bursary of 100% of the school fees is awarded annually to a girl or a boy whose parents had not previously considered private education.

The child selected each year enters Sandroyd (a prep school in Tollard Royal near Salisbury) as a full-time boarder in year 7 and remains at Sandroyd for two years before moving on to Bryanston, where the award continues in order for the child to complete their education.
This wonderful opportunity is of considerable value and the selection process is made not just through means testing, but also on the academic and all-round talent of the child.
Full details are available from either the Sandroyd Office (01725 516264) or the Bursar (01725 516329).
