Scholarships and Bursaries

Programme, who have the potential to achieve outstanding results in IGCSEs and in their education beyond Bishopstrow.

To be considered for a scholarship, students will be assessed as follows:

  • Prior academic achievement;
  • Performance at interview (Zoom, Teams or face-to-face) with a senior member of the College’s academic team, including the ability to show genuine passion and commitment to their chosen academic journey;
  • Performance on the online Password English and Mathematics assessment (to be carried our and invigilated under exam conditions in the student’s home country); and
  • Reference from their current school.

Students enrolling on the One Year IGCSE Programme must have a minimum level of English equivalent to CEFR Level B2 (IELTS 5.5).

Scholarships apply to our published fees and are worth up to 20% of the Course fees for the One Year IGCSE Programme.

Bursaries are granted in recognition that there are some parents, or even markets, where our programmes are either unaffordable or the fees represent a significant burden.  The College supports some families faced with such challenging financial circumstances to ensure their child is able to receive the benefits of a British education.  Parents in this position are welcome to apply for Bursary assistance.

Bursaries are assessed on the basis of a means-tested assessment relating to the family’s ability to pay.

The College will normally award Scholarships and Bursaries, but reserves the right not to do so, if in the opinion of the Principal or the Directors, there is not a suitable candidate.
