    Bursaries
    Orwell Park offers a small number of means tested bursaries to candidates of high academic or all-round ability who would otherwise be unable to attend the school. These awards are subject to a full financial history and reviewed annually. 

    The school also offers a flat fee reduction of 10% to families in the armed forces who are already in receipt of CEA.

    The Orwell Park Foundation is aiming to raise an additional £250,000 over the next 3 years to fund additional bursary places.

    For more information about the fee support available, please see the school website:
