Scholarships & Bursaries

GENERAL OVERVIEW
Our scholarship provision is designed to attract boys and girls of outstanding talent and skill in a variety of fields. We value scholarship of all sorts. Through the excellence of our academic provision and of our facilities we aim to foster high achievement at all levels and to challenge expectations. The interplay of teaching and learning, and the experiences to be gained from being part of a rich and diverse community, encourages all pupils to develop their talents and to emerge as confident, well-rounded individuals.

The value of a Scholarship or a Foundation Award is a fee concession of 10 per cent which parents or legal guardians of the awardee may elect to accept. More than one Scholarship can be awarded to a candidate although the total fee reduction available is limited to 10 per cent.

The level of fee concession provided can be augmented by bursary support up to 100 per cent of the boarding or day fees subject to means assessment. To access bursary support a Confidential Statement of Financial Circumstances must be completed and should be submitted to the Bursar before the closing date for applications. Completed bursary applications received after the closing date will not be assessed until after the result of a scholarship application is known and any bursary award may not then be offered at the time of joining the School. We are not able to provide an indication of the amount of financial assistance that may be available until the Registration Form has been completed and returned to the Admissions Office, together with payment of the Registration Fee. Bursary application forms are obtainable from The Bursary, Rugby School, 10 Little Church Street, Rugby, CV21 3AW (telephone 01788 556 260 or email bursary@rugbyschool.co.uk).

Additionally, at the Head Master’s discretion, exceptional awards with a fee concession which may be greater than 10 per cent can be made where, during the assessment process, we identify exceptional potential.
