Bursaries & Fees Assistance


At Shebbear College we are able to offer fees assistance through means-tested Bursaries, based on parental income. Bursaries are seperate to Scholarships, which are based on academic achievement or talent in a particular area of school life.

Your son or daughter may be eligable for a means-tested bursary if your family is not in a position to cover the full fees. Bursaries are calculated by the Finance Office and can offer a reduction in fees according to parental income. Applicants will be asked to submit evidence of income and other financial information and this will be reviewed annually.

There is a finite amount of capital in the bursary scheme, therefore the number of bursaries is limited.

MIST Bursaries

For families within the Methodist Church, bursaries are also available via the Methodist Independent Schools Trust (MIST). MIST administers a Methodist Bursary Fund which enables children from Methodist families to attend the Senior School as day pupils or boarders.
