These are awarded in the light of both the entrance examination performance and a review of annual parental income. The level of assistance will be dependent upon gross parental income. Entrance Bursaries range from 10% up to 100% fee reduction.
SIXTH FORM ENTRY
Bursaries which are already held by current students are continued into the Sixth Form, subject to the usual assessment of income and any other rules governing these schemes. However, a number of additional bursaries are available for students entering the Sixth Form. These are open to both current students and applicants from outside King Henry’s. Any current parents who feel that their financial circumstances may entitle them to consideration for a bursary award should contact the Headmaster’s PA for an application form. Parents completing an external application form are required to tick the bursary box and a bursary form will then be sent out to them for completion.
HOW TO APPLY
To apply for a bursary you will need to tick the ‘Yes’ box on the application form after the question ‘Do you wish to apply for Bursary Assistance towards fees?’. Once you have ticked this box and submitted your application form we will then send a bursary form to you to complete. The deadline for 11+ Bursary applications is Tuesday 31st October and the deadline for Sixth Form bursary applications is January 2024.
It is the Governors’ stated policy, through their Bursary and Scholarship Schemes, to give able children whose parents could not otherwise afford fees, the opportunity to attend King Henry’s and to remain at the School until the end of their schooling, which for the majority is at 18.
