FOUNDATION AWARDS

Foundation Awards are a new type of bursary, aimed at providing life changing opportunities for talented children. A Foundation Awards offers a fee discount to families who would otherwise not be able to consider an independent education and who have clearly proven financial need. Foundationers will demonstrate significant potential in one or more of Dean Close’s key areas of focus: Academic, Music, Sport, Art or Drama. They will have strength of character, a can-do attitude and will show the potential and willingness to contribute to school life. Click here for further details.
