Our bursaries are discretionary, means-tested and awarded on a sliding scale based on financial need.

Awards are reviewed annually with the expectation that they will decrease over time in order that as many families as possible are able to benefit from the bursary funds available.

Unfortunately, we regret that St Mary's bursaries are not available for international students or students at St Mary's Preschool and Junior School.

Bursaries may be made to existing or prospective families. Existing families who are committed to St Mary’s School, Cambridge but whose financial circumstances have changed will be prioritised over new applicants. Our first call on resources will be to support students at mid points in their studies i.e. from Year 10 into Year 11, or in Lower Sixth into Upper Sixth.

Existing parents who have come across unforeseen financial difficulty are encouraged to contact The Bursar to discuss financial support, which may be available.

The closing date for bursary applications for September 2024 entry is 20 October 2023.
