Assistance with fees

There are a number of ways that you may be able to obtain financial support to make our fees more affordable to you.

Means tested assisted places

Assisted places (bursaries) are awarded on a case-by-case basis and based on both academic ability and financial need. The value of the award is calculated on a sliding scale that takes into account the financial position of both parents’ income and assets. They may only be awarded to a child entering the school in Year 7, Year 9 or into the Sixth Form and are reviewed annually.

To apply for a means tested bursary, first you will need to register your child at Embley. We will then work with Bursary Administration Ltd, who administer bursary applications on our behalf, and together we can help guide you through the process.   

The deadline for means tested bursary applications for September 2021 entry is Friday 27 November 2020. 

Emergency bursaries

Occasionally, parents are unable to continue paying the full fees due to unemployment or other circumstances. It may then be possible for us to provide a bursary or other short-term support to enable your child to complete the current stage of education. Normally, such assistance is provided to those pupils who are preparing for public examinations. We may ask parents to complete a bursary application for emergency bursary support, depending on the circumstances.
