How to Apply?
Applicants will be asked to complete a detailed financial questionnaire in order for the appropriate level of assistance to be determined. Our Bursar will be on hand to help prospective parents with the completion of this form if necessary and the details are then assessed by our Finance and General Purposes committee prior to any terms being offered. All applications are dealt with sensitively and in the strictest confidence and in accordance with GDPR regulations. You are not committed in any way by this process and if no terms are available or the terms offered are not acceptable, any applications are securely destroyed and no records are maintained.
Are you thinking that you may not qualify?
It goes without saying that if you do not apply then you will never know whether a Durlston education would have been possible for your child or children. Not all applicants are successful, but assistance terms can be generous to those who are, though this will not amount to free education.
If you would like further information or to arrange an appointment with our Bursar please complete our enquiry form and we will be in touch with you.
