“As a parent I always wanted the best education for my daughter but was unable to afford it being a single parent. My daughter and I are so grateful for the generous bursary that Glendower has given us. My daughter has thrived at the school, comfortable in her situation and never judged by her peers, nor I by the parents. In fact, we have both made great friends for life.”
“We were living in the Grenfell Tower when tragedy struck. What we learnt from Grenfell is the importance of family and building resilience to ensure that one can deal with challenging and even horrific life changing events. We want to couple that with strong values and a stellar education to give our daughter the tools to make a difference in her life and for those around her, to nation build and be of service. Although we have no authority over some matters, we can only ensure that we give our daughter our support and empower her to become a positive adult contributing positively to society. Out of this terrible tragedy must come some good and we are certain that Glendower Preparatory School offers this.”
We are proud that our pupil body reflects the diverse local community – Glendower girls usually live just a short distance from the school but are from a wide range of backgrounds and ethnicities.
Glendower School Trust is a charitable trust committed to widening access to a Glendower education and aspires to provide means tested bursary provision for 7% of the school’s student population, awarded on a sliding scale with additional support available for those who may need it. This we know will impact positively on the socio-economic diversity of the whole school community and broaden every student and their family’s school experience.
All bursaries awarded will always be based on the twin criteria of academic merit and family financial circumstances. Parents wishing to be considered for financial assistance should indicate this on the registration form.
Financial assistance, in the form of a Hardship Award, is also available to current pupils, whose parents experience financial problems. Financial support, either through the bursary fund or via hardship awards, will always be prioritised to those students already at the school before additional bursary awards are offered to new incoming applicants.
