Bursaries are available in exceptional circumstances to provide short term financial assistance to parents experiencing unexpected financial difficulties.

The award of Bursaries at St Mary’s is decided on a case-by-case basis by the School’s experienced Bursary Committee including members of the Governing Body. Bursaries are subject to an annual review, however, they may be reviewed sooner when the School is informed of a change in a family’s financial circumstances.

Parents are required to complete a Bursary Application Form and a covering letter providing background to the request is advised. Please contact the Finance Office for more information and guidance and for a Bursary Application Form.

Please be advised that the Bursary Committee meets on a termly basis, usually during the second half of a term, in order that decisions regarding bursary awards can be communicated ahead of the following term’s invoices being prepared.
