Bursaries

No prospective Notre Dame parent need feel that they cannot afford to send their daughter to study at the School. In line with Charity Commission public benefit guidelines, the Heads and Governors of School are delighted to inform you of the financial provision for parents who might be unable to pay the fees to have their daughters educated at Notre Dame School.

Notre Dame School is proud of its heritage as a Catholic Foundation but welcomes girls of any faith background into its academically successful, caring and supportive environment.

Bursaries 

Bursaries are available in selected year groups to pupils on entry to Notre Dame School. These places are offered to girls who would benefit from a Notre Dame Catholic education but whose families are unable to afford the full fees and who have no substantial capital assets. This support is also available to scholarship candidates. These awards are offered for up to a period of 12 months after which time the level of award and the parents current financial circumstances shall be reviewed.

How to apply

Current parents and new applicants to the school are eligible to apply for these awards, which are subject to a means-tested review of a family’s financial circumstances and a home visit. The selection and award of places will be at the sole discretion of the School.

(Please note that the discounted fee applies only to the tuition fee and not extras).

Applications can be made at any time and the Bursary Committee meets on an ad hoc basis throughout the year to consider urgent applications. The Bursary Committee usually meets in the spring term to consider any applications for the following academic year.
