Scholarships and Bursaries

Scholarships and Bursaries

The School's Scholarship and Bursary scheme is designed to identify boys of outstanding talent, to nurture that talent and to give them access to a Bedford education regardless of means.

Scholarships
Academic, Music, Sport (including Golf) Scholarships are available to boys at 13+ and 16+. All-Round scholarships may also be awarded to candidates who fall short of a scholarship in one area alone, but exhibit a high level of ability in at least two from Academic, Music or Sport scholarship applications and/or other particular strengths. It is possible for boys to apply for more than one Scholarship.

All successful scholarship candidates receive up to a maximum of 10% remission on fees. Any amount required beyond this is awarded on a means tested basis through the Bursary scheme.

Bursaries
A number of bursary awards are available at 11+ 13+ and 16+ to parents of boys with significant academic, music, sporting potential, who would otherwise be unable to afford the fees. All awards are means-tested but bursaries of up to 100% of school fees are possible. Each boy's academic, music, sporting or other recognised talent is tested as appropriate, together with a formal interview.

Bedford School Trust Awards
At trustees’ discretion, awards may be given by the Bedford School Trust to either supplement means tested awards or to give higher awards to boys of exceptional ability.
