Bursaries take the form of means tested discounts for new (and sometimes existing) students. These are intended to help a student enter the School and the majority will continue for the duration of their time at Sidcot. Hardship Bursaries are sometimes available to existing students, where a family's financial situation changes unexpectedly during their time at the School.

Sidcot School obtains funding for bursaries from a number of different sources including income from several trusts and endowment funds. The bursary funds are limited so it is not always possible to meet all the requests for support.

Applications for September 2022 must be made by Friday 7 January 2022. Bursaries are reviewed annually and are awarded in line with our Bursary Policy and Procedure. The Bursary Policy and Procedure document and application form are available to download below.
