Hi everyone. I'm new here - We are looking at independent schools for our daughter, age 8. We have been in touch with a school who offer a scholarship for year 4. They are up to 50%.
She will attend a taster day and sit the tests in early July. We also need to make an appointment to see the head, probably late June. We also want to apply for a bursary, whether this is along side the scholarship or stand alone. I don't know whether to ask for bursary information in advance or when we see the head?
In fact, I know very little about the scholarship and bursary side, other than what I've read on websites and other posts. Any advice would be great on all aspects of this. Thank you in advance.
you better ask for bursary information now, if your dd getting 50% scholarship that is good. still they can extend the benefit as means tested bursary. some schools offer upto 100% of fee. but u would not be getting 50% scholarship and upto 100% bursary, both together will be combined and it can be upto 100% of fee
how were you offered aleready 50% scholarship without your daughter sitting the exams
