Key Workers' Bursary
In September 2020, one full-fee equivalent bursary is being made available for children of parents/carers who are both key workers living in the local area. The School defines a key worker as someone who is employed by the public sector, in a frontline role delivering an essential public service. Examples of such roles include: clinical NHS staff (other than doctors and dentists), teachers in schools and in further education and sixth form colleges, police officers and Community Support Officers, prison officers, probation service staff, firefighters, ambulance service crew and members of the armed forces.
This bursary provides an enhanced level of bursarial support over a wider range of total family income: for this bursary, the School is unlikely to award a bursary if the family gross income is more than five times the school fees (rather than four). Whilst the bursary is aimed at families where both parents/carers are key workers, where only one parent/carer is employed in such a role, careful consideration will be given to the circumstances/employment of the second parent/carer in deciding whether this specific bursary should apply.
