    Bursaries
    Elstree offers means-tested bursaries of up to 100 per cent of fees to new students who qualify, as well as existing students whose financial circumstances have changed. Applications are judged against suitability, both academically and with respect to wider school life, as well as need. The application process contains the usual full financial history and home visit and is subject to an annual review.
