Unlocking talent. Realising potential.

The Bursary Foundation connects high achieving pupils from low income backgrounds with bursary places at leading independent schools. We do this by working closely with primary schools to identify pupils that may be eligible for bursary places and supporting these pupils with tutoring and mentoring so that they and their families are well prepared and well informed before sitting entrance exams for  our partner schools. 

In Autumn 2018 The Bursary Foundation launched our pilot project working with 20 pupils from 5 primary schools in Ancoats, Gorton, Clayton and Harpurhey. 

Please get in touch if you are are a primary school wanting to work with us from September 2019.
