However, a friend in your county who tried for a school was offered a 20% art scholarship, but they have used up their bursary funding on existing pupils, even though it was implied that this would be available. She doesn't have a grammar and now doesn't have enough money for the independent.
Moving - thanks for that. Well done to your daughter.
The school we are looking at only advertises that it offers 10% scholarships for various subjects, art, drama, music, etc. But it does mention bursaries in its paperwork - but perhaps that is only to satisfy needs of the Charity Commission.
I know of a child who has been offered a place to start Sept 2009 who has been offered a scholarship of 10% but also asked to forgo this to enable the school to offer more bursaries! Needless to say they are taking up the 10% reduction and not offering it back!
I also know that this particular school has in the past offered 100% or 50% scholarships to 2 other children I know of - but just not sure in the current economic climate.
