Bursaries are only awarded in the Senior School, in line with the School’s policy on Public Benefit. Ewell Castle School seeks to offer means-tested awards for children whose families may not otherwise be able to afford the full fees. Bursaries are offered for the duration that a pupil remains at the School, subject only to financial circumstances remaining unchanged; an annual review is undertaken.

Pupils must satisfy academic entry requirements to be considered for such an award. Parents are required to submit a confidential statement of financial circumstances at the time they apply to the School, which will enable the School to determine the appropriate level of parental contribution.

The Bursary application deadline for entry to the School in September 2020 closes on Friday 8th November 2019.

We will be accepting bursary applications from September 2019 for pupils wishing to join Ewell Castle School in September 2020. Please email the Principal's PA, Mrs El-Dahshan at for further details on bursaries.
