The Bursary Fund

Widening access to pupils from all backgrounds is of central importance, and The Ashford School Foundation is committed to expanding the School’s bursary scheme so that more students may benefit from a life-changing Ashford School education, irrespective of family circumstances.

The Ashford School Foundation currently awards means-tested bursaries (formerly known as Assisted Places) to support high-ability students to join the Senior School, as well as emergency bursaries for families facing unexpected hardships. These bursaries vary in value dependent on the family’s individual circumstances, and are specifically designed to give students from families with limited means a transformational journey, leading them to a successful life and career.

This academic year, the Ashford School Foundation are supporting 14 students with a bursary.

Every donation helps us to provide life-changing opportunities to pupils who could not otherwise benefit from an Ashford School education. If you share our vision and passion for education, and would like to give to our bursary fund, please visit our Support Us page.

If you are interested in leaving a gift for the Bursary Fund in your will, please visit our Lilian Brake Legacy Society page.

Our Testimonials from Current Recipients

Our Testimonials from Alumni

"As a single parent I would never have been able to consider sending my daughter to an independent school if it wasn’t for the Ashford School Foundation. I am extremely grateful to them for the help that the bursary has provided us both. Every day I see the benefits of my daughter being at Ashford School reflected in her academic confidence, her creativity, and in her happiness and wellbeing. I know she feels very privileged to be a part of this wonderful scheme and has truly blossomed as a result - Mrs Willis"
