Fee Support/Bursaries

We understand that a Stonyhurst education is not affordable for everyone which is why we have a number of bursaries available for children joining Stonyhurst from 11+ onwards. On occasions, exceptions are made to this rule, with decisions being at the discretion of the Headmasters and Bursar. All bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the Governors, with the Headmasters, Bursar and the Clerk to the Governors being responsible for the management and coordination of the process.
