Bursaries and Fee Remissions
Information on our bursary schemes
There are a limited number of small endowment funds which provide bursaries to enable pupils who meet certain specified criteria to come to Monkton who would otherwise be unable to do so on financial grounds. A limited number of bursaries are also offered each year, out of School funds, with the level of assistance offered being means-tested and dependent on completion and assessment of a full confidential statement of financial circumstances. There is no fixed limit to the level of assistance provided in any single case (i.e. 100% bursaries are possible in exceptional circumstances), although financially there is a total limit to the amount of assistance that can be offered to pupils in any one year. Higher priority is given to children of clergy or missionaries, or where special circumstances give rise to a particularly deserving case, but awards are made on a “first-come, first-served” basis, funds permitting; thus, late applicants, however deserving may find that their application is rejected or they are awarded a lesser amount. This summary includes the sibling discounts shown below.
We are pleased to announce an increase to our Armed Forces discounts for new children starting from September 2015. For children of a parent who is a member of the Armed Forces, new starters into Y7 or below who stay through to 6th form, will get a 20% military discount; if they join from Y9, they will receive 15% discount, and from Y12, a 10% discount. This discount is dependent on pupils signing up right through to the end of 6th form and is only offered to new entrants to the School, and only to boarders or extended day fee pupils. For standard day pupils, no discount is offered. Please note that if the child leaves, we reserve the right to claim back this discount. Please also note that where a scholarship or other discount is awarded, the School reserves the right to subsume the scholarship/discount into the Forces discount.
Sibling discounts are applicable where a family has two or more children between the ages of 3 and 19 years in full-time education in the School at any one time and where also the family is not in receipt of a bursary or other fee remission assistance. Such discounts will apply, however, if a family member holds an Academic, Art, Drama, Music, Sport or other Award based on merit. Discounts available will be 5% for the second child in the School at any one time, 10% for the third and 15% for the fourth (or more) child(ren) in the School at any one time.
