Scholarships & bursaries
Scholarships are awarded to pupils with outstanding ability and flair, which the school assesses by examination, interview or audition. The financial value of a scholarship will be 10% of the annual tuition Fee – irrespective of parental means. Scholarships are awarded in five categories: Academic; Music; Sport; Art & Design; and Drama.
Academic scholarships are awarded at 11+, 13+ and Sixth Form entry. Music scholarships are awarded at 11+, 13+ and Sixth Form entry. Sport, Art & Design, and Drama scholarships are only awarded at Sixth Form entry.
Scholarships are open to applications from pupils joining the School as well as from pupils already attending the School. If you wish to apply for a scholarship, please indicate your interest on the application form. Pupils may apply for more than one scholarship, although the maximum financial benefit that can be cumulated is 20% of the school fees.
Norwich School sets aside generous funds to enable boys and girls to attend the School who would not be able to do so without financial help. All bursaries are means-tested and can result in a reduction in tuition Fees of up to 100% with the actual amount of bursarial support being dependent on family income and finances.
Bursaries, with the exception of the Choir Endowment Fund bursaries, are only available to pupils attending the Senior School (11+ entry). Bursaries apply to Tuition Fees in future terms and are not retrospective. Beneficiaries of bursaries may also, if funds allow, seek support for a reduction in the cost of academic trips and visits. There is no bursarial assistance towards the cost of lunches, uniform (although the School in collaboration with the PTA operates a second-hand clothes shop) or travel to/from School.
As a general rule, it is unlikely that a bursary will be awarded when (a) family income is greater than four and a half times a single senior School pupil's annual tuition Fee and (b) a family’s net assets are greater than twenty times a single senior School pupil’s annual tuition Fee. In cases where a bursary holder has been awarded a Scholarship, the Scholarship reduction in Fees would be in addition to the means-tested bursary award up to a maximum reduction in Fees of 100%.
Applications for bursarial assistance for pupils applying to join the School should be made on the Application Form or by the Parents of existing pupils indicating their desire to seek bursarial assistance by making a request to the Bursar at any time after the pupil has joined the School.
The bursary will send you a detailed Application for Financial Assistance form which, once duly completed and returned with all the supporting documents, will enable the School to assess what, if any, bursary may be available. The offer the School may be able to make will depend on the funds at its disposal at that time as well as the level of demand from other families for bursarial assistance.
The School funds the bursary programme through a range of different financial sources, including income from the Bursary fund, gifts and donations, the School’s surplus of charitable income over charitable expenses, and the support of a variety of external funds including the Choir Endowment Fund, The Worshipful Company of Dyers, the Friends of Norwich School and the Ogden Trust.
Some funds are available for those pupils meeting specific criteria, including:
The Choir Endowment Fund - pupils attending Norwich School who are selected to join the Cathedral Choir are entitled to a 50% bursary for the duration of their membership of the Choir. Applications to be considered for Choir membership should be made directly to the Cathedral Choir Master.
The Worshipful Company of Dyers - the Dyers’ provide financial support to a pupil with all round talent at both 11+ and 16+. The criteria for the Dyers’ Bursary Scheme are similar to those outlined above and potential applicants should simply register interest in bursarial assistance on the Application Form if with regard to a new pupil, or inform the Bursary with regard to current pupils. The Registrar will inform you of eligibility at a later stage. Norwich School matches the Dyers’ award.
The Ogden Trust - the Trust provides support for talented State-school pupils admitted to study mathematics and physics at Sixth Form level at Norwich School. The Trust’s financial criteria are similar to our own. Pupils should register their interest in bursarial assistance on the Application Form. Norwich School matches the Ogden Trust award.
The Friends of Norwich School - the Friends offer to pay a bursary of up to 50% of the annual tuition Fee for a Sixth former at Norwich School. The Head Master, on reviewing requests for bursarial assistance from existing and new pupils, will determine which is to be awarded the Friends’ bursary.
