What is the Hardship Fund?
We are fortunate to have the generous support of The John Roan Foundation behind us. Each year, the Trustees allocate funds to the school to support our families who have difficulty in paying for:
1. Curriculum trips, visits and year group residential trips (up to 100% of the cost)
2. Uniform, shoes or sports kit
The allocation of funds from The Hardship Fund is discretionary and, if awarded, does not need to be repaid.
How to apply to the Hardship Fund
Applications for Hardship Grants for school uniform is NOW CLOSED for this academic year. Please liaise with the Head of Year if you feel there are exceptional circumstances under which you qualify.
The application will remain confidential and will be considered by the Headteacher, given their knowledge of the student’s circumstances. If approved by the Principal, the application will be passed to the Finance Office for processing. A family may be able to apply for hardship support at any time during the academic year. It may also be possible to apply more than once, but usually only where circumstances have not changed. Families cannot appeal a decision not to award a hardship grant, as the Principal's decision is final.
