Scholarships

In the year prior to their arrival, incoming 1st Year students are invited to participate in our scholarship examination. It is only open to students already enrolled in a place in the school for the following September.

Students entering 1st Year in September 2022 will be contacted in December 2021 about the scholarship exam, and they can apply then to sit it if they wish.

The exam will be run in mid-January 2022 and decisions on outcomes will be made by the end of that month.

Bursaries

FamEd CLG, the trustees of Rockbrook Park School, have developed a bursary programme for school families. Bursaries are intended to supplement a family’s own resources, and recipients range from families whose ability to pay school costs is quite limited to families who may need only a minor subsidy. Full details on our bursary policy and application process are available on request.

Bursary applications can only be made on behalf of a student already enrolled in the school for the following September, and may be submitted once he has received his Letter of Offer of a place in the school.
