Children who have a proven track record of displaying consistent and exceptional talents and of performing at a high level in areas such as Sport, Music and the Performing Arts are invited to take part in a subsequent pursuit-based scholarship assessment day.
Scholarships can range from 5% to a maximum of 50% dependant on performance and are at the discretion of the Headmaster. High awards i.e. those exceeding £600 per term will be means-tested in the light of the School’s need to conform to the recent changes in Charity Law.
Scholarships are awarded mainly at the 11+ stage. Some scholarships are, however, awarded at other entry points e.g. 14+ and entry to Sixth Form.
The Notre Dame Award is an all-rounder Scholarship for high academic calibre and a commitment to extra-curricular activities.
Most scholarships are awarded after the November and January Assessment Days.
The scholarships come under various headings:
For those unable to afford the full fees, the School offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries. Awards are strictly confidential and are subject to annual review. There is no maximum level to the award that may be made, although awards greater than 50% of fees are necessarily few in number.
For members of Armed Forces in receipt of the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA), the School offers a further discount where the parental contribution is greater than the minimum required 10% contribution, making independent education at Trinity a very affordable option. For an explanatory leaflet, please contact the Registrar. For more information about the CEA, please follow this link to contact the Children’s Education Advisory Service, run by the MOD.
Please contact the Registrar for further information on 01626 771 530 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Assistance with school fees is also available from a number of charities that provide support for children in particular circumstances or age groups and/or parents in particular professions. More information can be obtained on this website, or by telephoning the Educational Grants Advice Helpline on 01932 865619 (9am-11am Mon to Fri).
