A limited number of means-tested bursaries (financial assistance) is available each year to families who would not otherwise be able to send their child to Hereford Cathedral School. Bursaries may be awarded to supplement a scholarship or simply as a means of supporting pupils who have passed the entrance exam.
Bursary awards are subject to a parental means test, which takes into account savings, investments and realisable assets as well as income, and are only available to pupils in Year 7 and above.
The amount of bursary award is based on a sliding scale. Awards are made from a limited fund and therefore not all applications will be successful.
Fourth Child Allowance
A 20% allowance is available to all parents in respect of fourth and subsequent children in Hereford Cathedral School. This allowance takes place regardless of when the children were present at the School; however previous children must have attended the Senior School for a full five year period for the fourth child allowance to be awarded.
HCJS Sibling Discount
There is a 10% sibling discount for one child when there are two or more siblings at the Junior School. This discount stops when the oldest child leaves the Junior School.
If you have any questions or require any further information about available bursaries at the School please call Claire Jones, Bursar’s PA, on 01432 363544.
