Our Insight

Scholarships & Bursaries copy.jpg

Financial assistance

Every year we make available a limited number of enrolments through the Sompting Abbotts Scholarships & Bursaries Programme. We aim to be as accessible as possible and our scheme has been established to help able children achieve their full potential, notwithstanding family means. 

Awards are at the discretion of the school management. If further financial assistance is needed, parents can apply for a means-tested Bursary Award, in addition to the Scholarship Award.

Scholarships recognise and support excellence in five categories: Academic; All-rounder; Sports; Music, and Art, at the focus entry points of 7+ (Year 3) or 11+ (Year 6), but the school will consider awarding scholarships to able children in other age groups. 

What is a preparatory school? Like every type of school, preparatory schools are all very different in their ethos and their goals. They're also different from a mainstream state primary school.
