We are committed to educating those whom we believe are likely to flourish at St Mary’s, and on this basis we offer a small number of means-tested Bursaries to promising pupils entering Senior House whose parents cannot meet the cost of school fees. For the most part, applications are to be submitted in advance of the academic year and will be considered upon receipt of your Registration Form.  If you would like further details please contact our Bursar.

The deadline for new and current pupils’ Bursary applications for the academic year September 2024 to August 2025 is Friday 27th October 2023. Please send any enquiries to Mrs Cicco at
