The Firs School Bursary Trust was formally established in 2013. It’s primary aim is to enable children who would benefit from attending The Firs to secure a place despite their parents not being able to pay all or part of the fees. This assistance can range from a small percentage to a full bursary depending on the financial circumstances of the parents and the funds available to the charity.
All applications require a full financial disclosure, which is renewed annually.
Applications from prospective parents are made in the Autumn term and interviews with trustees are held January. Offers of financial assistance are made in February. Parents are asked to follow the normal admission process to secure a place at the school.
Current parents who find their financial circumstances changing unexpectedly can apply at any time.
All information exchanged is treated with full confidentiality.
If you would like to help the work of our charity financially then the easiest way is to use our partner web site run by CAF.
