Scholarships and Bursaries

The school offers financial support to a limited number of students in the following ways.  Parents who wish their children to be considered for any form of financial support are urged to apply at the very earliest opportunity. Funds are limited and the allocation for each year cannot be exceeded.


We are delighted to offer a new array of scholarships for September 2021 entry.  There are six different scholarship types available.  These are:

  1. Academic Scholarships
  2. Creative Arts Scholarships
  3. Sports Scholarships
  4. Engineering Scholarships
  5. The Full Circle Scholarship for exceptional students
  6. The Cumbrian Award

Details of each of the entry requirements can be found below:

Due to their highly prestigious nature, only a small number of scholarship awards are made each year and competition is expected to be high. 

To apply for a scholarship award, please complete and return the Registration Form along with a covering letter from the student, outlining why they would like to apply for the award.  Please send applications direct to Head of Marketing and Admissions, Ceara Fisher, on


Bursaries are financial support given to students who would not otherwise be able to attend the school.  The level of support varies according to parental need, but can extend to up to 25% fee remission in cases of proven need.

Other Fee Remission

10% fee remission for second and subsequent sibling fees.

5% fee remission for the children and grandchildren of Old St Beghians.

Members of the armed forces are encouraged to enquire about the financial support we can offer in support of their children’s education at St Bees School.

Financial arrangements between parents and school are strictly confidential.  Where an award is made, it is expressly agreed that the value will not be disclosed by parents to any third party.  Failure to abide by this strict expectation forfeits eligibility for remission or financial support with immediate effect.
