Scholarships and bursaries

Scholarship and bursary opportunities available to pupils at St Chris.

Art and Academic Scholarships

Scholarships

St Chris offers Academic and Art Scholarships in the Senior School.

Scholarships form a maximum value of 10% of tuition fees, and are awarded after consideration of an applicant's performance in assessment exercises and interviews. Scholarships are awarded on merit and/or the ability to make an outstanding contribution to the wider life of the School.

All awards are conditional for their continuance on appropriate levels of performance and good behaviour.

Scholarships for the Sixth Form are awarded following consideration of an applicant's performance in her/his GCSE examinations.

All students are automatically considered for an Academic Scholarship.

The deadline for submitting Art Scholarship applications for September 2018 entry is 10 November 2017.

Bursaries

Financial assistance is available, through our bursary scheme, to those families with children joining St Christopher School who have need of it.

The number of bursaries available is limited and they are generally awarded to new entrants to the School.

The School offers bursaries to parents whose income is such that they would not otherwise be able to pay the full fees. The awards are based on an assessment of how much a child will be able to benefit from the School and the degree of assistance required. The Bursary Committee meets once a year, in January, to consider bursary applications and review the progress of each bursary holder.

Bursaries continue for every year in which a child remains at the School, subject to an annual review of the parents' financial circumstances and to the satisfaction of the Head and the Bursary Committee that the child is continuing to benefit from and contributing fully to the School.

Bursary Application forms can be obtained from the Admissions Office.

The deadline for submitting bursary applications for September 2018 entry is 6 December 2017.

The Robertson Bursary Trust

Each year The Robertson Bursary Trust funds a small number of pupils to attend the Sixth Form at St Chris. The School considers applications from both internal and external applicants, and applications for both day and boarding fees.

The fund was set up by the Robertson family, who have been part of the St Christopher community as pupils, active Old Scholars and Governors for many years.

All awards are based on parental income and are conditional for their continuance on appropriate levels of performance and good behaviour.

Bursary Application forms can be obtained from the Admissions Office.

The deadline for submitting bursary applications for students starting Sixth Form in September 2018 is 6 December 2017.
