BursariesAs a charity, the School is committed to continuing its tradition of providing a distinctive and stimulating learning environment for bright and talented girls from all backgrounds.

Each year we support families whose daughters would clearly benefit enormously from a Downe House education, but who would not be able to attend the School without the financial assistance of a bursary. Yet each year we receive more requests for bursaries than we are able to support.

In 2017-2018, 22 girls benefited from full and partial means-tested bursaries. Financial help towards the payment of fees in cases of proven need is available at all points of entry to Downe House. This assistance is available in the form of bursaries which vary in size according to circumstances; some may be as high as 100% plus an allowance towards School extras.

By giving towards the Bursary Fund, you will be making a difference to a child's future and be part of a philanthropic tradition that reaches back over 100 years.
