BURSARIES

At Lucton we offer a number of bursaries each year to provide financial support to families who would not otherwise be able to support their child’s education at the School. We offer partial fee assistance on a sliding scale according to the results of our means test.

All bursary awards are subject to an independent parental means test, which takes into account savings, investments and realisable assets as well as income.

Awards are made from a limited fund and therefore not all applications made will be successful.

For further information about Bursaries, please contact bursar@luctonschool.org

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply for a scholarship?

Anyone, whether they are at Lucton School already or another school, state or private, we welcome applications from all pupils for entry into Year 7, Year 9, and Year 12.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

You need to submit a Lucton application form prior to applying for a scholarship. You must complete the Scholarship Registration form so that we can book you in and arrange the exam papers, interview schedule and allocate you to a class.

How many scholarships can I apply for?

Students can apply for any number of scholarships, however, they can only be awarded one. When attending their Scholarship Assessment Day, students will be allocated to one day that best suit their application, and if they need to undertake additional auditions, this will be arranged for the same day they are attending.

What does the scholarship day look like?

Students will be invited in for a Taster Day, joining existing students along with prospective scholars. The timetable for the day will follow that of existing year 6, year 8 and year 11 students. Each timetable will differ, depending on what scholarship they are applying for – Academic, Art, Drama, Music, Pierrepont or Sport

Alongside timetabled lessons, all pupils will have an interview with the Head, will complete a CAT4 assessment and also complete their applied for activity with the relevant Head of Department, as follows:

Academic Awarded based on CAT4 assessment and Interview with Head of Middle/Senior School
Art Art Portfolio presentation with Head of Art

When will I hear if I got a scholarship?

All applicants for the scholarships will be invited for a taster day, attendance to which is mandatory to be assessed for each award. The Heads of Department will make recommendations to the Headmaster, who will notify successful pupils week commencing 14th February. Unsuccessful scholars will also be notified, however due to the volume of applicants, we cannot provide individual feedback.

Can I have more than one discount?

Scholarship discounts can sometimes be used in conjunction with a bursary.

Do you offer Bursaries?

We also offer a number of bursaries aimed at assisting academically gifted students who may not be able to consider us otherwise. Bursaries can vary in size but all are means-tested and awarded after an assessment of household income.

Do I need to re-apply if I already have a Lucton Scholarship?

All awards are assured for the period of time the student studies at Lucton and are subject to excellent behaviour and maintaining consistent academic progress. If you are already a Lucton Scholar, you do not need to reapply.
