    Means-tested Bursaries, Scholarships and Fee Discount Policy

    The Governors of Aldro are committed to broad access to the school by offering to eligible parents, means-tested financial support with the payment of schools fees.  Such support may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. Bursary awards are subject to repeat testing of parental means each year and may be varied upwards or downwards, depending on parental circumstances.  

    Scholarships

    Form 3 (7+)

    Two to three scholarships of 10% may be awarded to boys who perform exceptionally well in the entrance exams in October, or who have exceptional talent in sport or music.

    Form 7 (11+)

    In addition to scholarships and bursaries, Aldro offers additional assistance.

    Additional Assistance

    • Armed Forces: a discount for boarding places to the value of 20% is available to current serving members of the armed forces.
    • Staff: a discount is available for current members of staff.  Staff may also be eligible for a mean-tested bursary if they are not able to afford the residual fees after a staff discount has been applied.
    • Clergy: a discount of 20% is available to those in full-time Christian ministry.
    • Siblings: When three boys attend simultaneously a sibling discount of 20% for the youngest child will be applicable.
    • Discretionary: an award of up to 15% can be made at the discretion of the Headmaster and Bursar for cases which do not fit easily into an established category.

    In addition to the School’s bursary fund, there are a number of educational and charitable trusts which provide assistance with tuition fees. In the majority of cases, these are to assist children who are already attending a fee paying school and due to a change of circumstances may be unable to remain.  Aldro School encourages parents/guardians to apply for support where it is felt a good case can be made for assistance.  Further information on how to pursue such assistance may be obtained from the Bursar bursar@aldro.org)
