    Bilton Grange operates a bursary scheme in partnership with Rugby School, granting Foundation Awards upon entry to Year 7 and Year 9. These are open to children who live within 20 miles of Rugby School and allow parents to access means-tested bursary support of up to 100% of fees for a day pupil.

    Foundation Award applicants for Year 7 entry should apply directly to Bilton Grange to take part in a process which will include assessment papers in English, Mathematics and Reasoning and an interview. In addition, they ask applicants to complete a short interview questionnaire prior to arrival and request a reference from their current school.

    At the same time parents should apply for means-tested bursary support towards fees using the Confidential Statement of Financial Circumstances form, which can be requested from:

    In exceptional circumstances the School may consider bursaries for entry in Years 4-6. Please contact the School Admissions office directly for more information about this. The contact details, as well as more details about the wider bursarial and fee support options available, can be found on the School website:
