That last reply is interesting. We are absolutely TERRIFIED that we will find ourselves in the situation that our salaries increase an amount, not necessarily a lot, and then cancel the bursary. It feels difficult to broach the subject without sounding like we are fishing to find out how to keep the salaries (artificially) low.
Yes, we would probably have qualified for a bursary initially based on income (although not necessarily on DS's ability, which is another matter!
), but being aware of dilemma facing friend referred to above who didn't dare to work full-time we decided not to even apply for one. Having said that we could never have afforded a school like Rugby without a bursary - luckily KES is (relatively) much more affordable!
