The provision of bursaries widens educational opportunities to children from a greater range of backgrounds, which enriches our community. As part of the legacy that our founder, William Lambe, worked so hard to achieve, we continue to value the importance of being inclusive and accessible to deserving children in the local area and beyond.
Bursaries are awarded according to financial need at the discretion of the Scholarship and Bursaries Committee and are reviewed annually. If applicable, the awarded percentage will be applied to tuition fees and boarding fees. Please note that our bursary provision does not cover lunch and transportation costs.
In addition to the School’s standard bursary programme, applicants to the Sixth Form are able to apply for The Blyth Bursary, which was established through a generous legacy from an Old Suttonian family. This seeks to support a local, talented child whose family’s financial circumstances would, under normal circumstances, preclude them from considering an education at Sutton Valence School; more information about this particular bursary can be found here.
Finally, any prospective pupils with a parent currently serving in the Armed Forces may also apply for a Forces Bursary, which is the equivalent of a 20 per cent discount applied to tuition and boarding fees (if applicable).
For further information about any of the above bursary schemes and to obtain the necessary application forms, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Bursar on 01622 845201. Please note that any applicant for a bursary must already be registered with us as a prospective pupil. We are not able to provide bursary application forms to those who are not yet registered.
