Each year at least 30% of students at the School experience financial difficulties and apply to the Fund Excellence for help.


The Fund for Excellence awards bursaries to exceptionally talented students in financial need who would otherwise be unable to take up a place or complete their training. To qualify students must provide evidence of their hardship - after having taken out the maximum government loan available (where eligible) and pursued measures to mitigate their need. Our Student Support Team provides all new students with guidance on part-time employment, funding applications and budgeting.
