Bursaries

Oakwood School is committed to broadening access to the school for prospective pupils, as well as supporting current pupils.  Help with the payment of school fees is available as means-tested financial assistance offered to parents/guardians who can demonstrate a genuine need for support.  Such financial assistance, traditionally known as a ‘bursary’ is provided in the form of a discount of up to 50% of school fees, depending on the financial and other circumstances of applicants.  

Requests for financial assistance usually fall into two categories: new applicants to the school, whose parents/guardians are unable to fund the full school fees and existing pupils where a change in parents/guardians’ circumstances has resulted in difficulty meeting school fees and may result in the child being withdrawn part way through a stage of education.

Both prospective and existing parents may apply to be considered for financial assistance by completing the application form which is available from the school Bursar.

Scholars' Awards are designed to recognise potential, reward excellence and to celebrate exceptional talent from Year 3 and above (Prep School).  The awards are child focused and we endeavour to give the selected pupils opportunities to act as ambassadors in their award subject.
