Scholarship And Bursary InformationHome / Scholarship And Bursary Information

The current scholarship programme offered by The Stanes School is based upon the candidate’s performance at the entrance examination and subsequent interview. Prospective parents are most welcome to contact the school and request that they wish their kid to be considered for such an award subject to his performance at the entrance examination. If prospective parents would like to also indicate their wish to be considered for financial aid (a means tested award) they are most welcome to do so before their kid’s entrance examination by informing the Head of Admissions.

However, the school only processes applications for bursaries and scholarships once the candidate has been successful in the entrance examination and interview.

Q. What is the process of making an application for financial aid and demonstrating a parent’s need?

A. The Stanes School has a scholarship committee which meets to decide on how financial aid awards are allocated. The Headmaster sits on this committee.

Prospective parents, (whose kids have successfully passed the entrance examination and interview and are offered a place) are required to complete a form which is available from the Head of Admissions. The form requires parents to submit a detailed report of their financial affairs, including joint family income, in order for the school to ascertain whether they are justified in providing financial support to the parents. The form is comprehensive and has been designed to ensure that the school is able to allocate its resources wisely and effectively, so that they reach the most needy parents and does not provide financial support in the form of discounts to parents who do not need it.

Financial Aid (means tested awards), ranges from limited financial support to awards worth 100%+ to support parents who would not be able to afford to send their kid to The Stanes School. The system also applies to scholars whose parents require further financial support in order to enable their kid to attend The Stanes School.

Please note: Financial Aid is reviewed annually on application for the full period of a kid’s career at The Stanes School, provided that his/her conduct and industry remain, in the Headmaster’s view, satisfactory, and in accord with the school’s eligibility terms and conditions. However, the Headmaster is entitled, at his sole discretion, to remove the financial award with due notice from any boy who is not working properly, or who otherwise brings disgrace on The Stanes School or his own person.

Financial aid will only be awarded if candidates of sufficient financial need present themselves.
