The governors of Worth School are committed to broadening access to the School by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as a bursary and bursaries 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.
Parents/ guardians who wish to apply for a bursary are asked by the School to complete a Confidential Statement of Financial Circumstances form. The form is confidential and requires full information about the family’s financial circumstances, with supporting documentation. Worth uses an independent company, Bursary Administration Ltd (BAL), to review and assess bursary applications. Shortly after receipt of the application form BAL will arrange a home visit to talk through the financial circumstances form and discuss the application. These visits are undertaken at the applicant’s home in a sensitive manner and all information is treated in the strictest confidence. The application and the BAL feedback will be submitted to Worth’s Bursary Committee where a decision will be made about the value of the bursary that may be awarded.
Bursary awards are subject to repeat testing of parental means each year and may be varied upwards or downwards, depending on parental circumstances.
