ACS Egham Bursaries

In line with our values, ACS welcomes students with enquiring minds, an international mindset, and a desire to make a difference.

ACS Egham bursaries will be offered to students who are most likely to benefit from an ACS education, but whose family circumstances mean that their parents cannot meet the full school fees. The financial awards will range from 10 – 100% of full fees.

All bursaries are means-tested, and each financial award is dependent on the student’s individual circumstance. 

We offer both Middle School Bursaries for students aged 11 or 13, and High School Bursaries, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), for students aged 16. Students applying for the IBDP bursary will be expected to achieve in the region of 5 A's at GCSE.

All students will benefit from a broad international curriculum which aims to inspire all to become successful lifelong learners and responsible global citizens.

Our criteria for awarding bursaries

We welcome applications from parents who believe their child (girl or boy) will benefit from a place at ACS, and who will contribute meaningfully to the life of the community and our international ethos, but who require financial assistance. Students must be a resident in the UK and have the right to remain. Assessments and a review of information submitted will follow, and decisions on bursary awards will be communicated during the month of March, prior to the start of the new academic year.

Calculating the bursary award

ACS financial awards are offered for up to 7 years, and range in magnitude from 10 – 100% of tuition fees (and in exceptional circumstances will include specific additional school-related costs to enable students to participate fully in school life). We calculate the amount of each bursary only after we have assessed parents' level of income and financial assets. Upon application, parents will be asked to submit various documents relating to this. Bursary awards will be reviewed on an annual basis taking into consideration any changes in parents’ financial circumstances.

Sunny campus shot
ACS is an incredibly warm and welcoming environment. I think most students here, have at some point been the ‘new kid’, they remember that it can be an anxious time. Making new friends and meeting new teachers was extraordinarily easy and I needn’t have been worried about that element at all.
