Sedbergh School welcomes bursary applications from families who might, under ordinary circumstances, not consider Sedbergh School for their child for financial reasons.
Having already contacted the Registrar, and Registered your child’s application to Sedbergh, you should contact the Bursary (Mr Tony Roberts, Deputy Bursar (Compliance), on +44 (0) 1539 620 303) for guidance on making an application.
Sedbergh School is committed to widening access by enabling children, who would not otherwise be able, to join the School, and to allow children to remain in the event of an unforeseen change in a family’s financial circumstances. However, Bursarial funds are limited and therefore distributed as beneficially as possible based on a wide range of criteria, not just financial.
All applications are treated in the strictest of confidence, means tested, and will be considered against any entitled concessions, current or pending awards or scholarships which may be combined into one level of support. A personal or online application interview or home visit may be required.
