School Assisted Places Scheme (SAPS)

At BGS we do not believe your income should be a barrier to your child’s education and ultimately their success in life.

We may be able to offer you financial assistance towards fees through our means-tested School Assisted Places Scheme (SAPS). Applications for assistance must be submitted in advance of the entrance examinations and assessments. An outline of when to submit is below:

Years 3–6: there are two main entrance assessment dates for Junior School applicants. These are in November and January. Any SAPS application must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the assessment that your child is scheduled to attend.

Years 7–Lower Sixth: all applications must be submitted by the 3 January 2019.

Invariably there are more applications than there are funds available, and academic merit is part of the assessment process. The number of awards made each year varies according to the calibre of applicants, and the levels of assistance offered.

For further information, please contact the Admissions Office.


Scholarships are available for entry into Years 7, 9, 10 and Lower Sixth.
