Abbotsholme are pleased to offer a number of means-tested bursaries to pupils each year. Please contact Juliette Sheldon on 01889 590217 for more information.

All applicants for a bursary must have filled in a registration form, and had a taster/assessment day prior to submitting the bursary forms. Taster days are part of the assessment procedure for admission into Abbotsholme.

Abbotsholme is committed to operating a Bursary scheme to assist in widening access to the Education provided by the School to those who cannot afford the full tuition fees and welcomes applications from all over the UK.

All Bursaries are means tested and Abbotsholme can provide some financial support depending upon parental income and financial circumstance. Parents/Guardians are obliged to provide confidential information concerning their financial situation. Your financial situation will then be assessed against various criteria set down by the School. Bursaries are awarded on an annual basis. Parents should note that a home visit may be required as part of the assessment.

Applications for bursaries for entry year 2022/2023 are now open.  An explanatory letter outlining dates and requirements, along with the application form are available to download below (Please note that we are accepting bursaries beyond the date mentioned in the letter, should you still wish to apply please complete the following form):




Through the generosity of The Abbotsholmians' Club, an established fund provides financial assistance to Old Abbotsholmians by way of two Bursaries, known as the OA Bursary and The Marsden Bursary. At the discretion of the Head, these are awarded annually to help Full Members of the club send their daughters and sons to Abbotsholme.
