One of the main priorities for Warwick School is to ensure that the school is open to the brightest and best boys, irrespective of their parents’ ability to afford the fees. Many of the boys to whom the Head Master would wish to award a place are unable to pursue their education here because their families cannot afford the fees.
Warwick School offers means-tested bursary support to boys from families with a low household income. Whereas government direct grants and assisted places once ensured a high proportion of free places, this is no longer the case and the school must now provide its own support. There are currently around 10% of boys on some form of bursary award. Funds are very limited and the school takes great care to assess families annually to ensure that money is being distributed fairly.
The school is committed to increasing its bursary provision to do more to support talented boys from all backgrounds, who may otherwise be prevented from taking up a place. This will ensure that we are able to admit the most promising boys on merit, increase the social diversity of the school and in turn benefit the whole Warwick community.
