We’re committed to helping children from all backgrounds have access to an outstanding education.
In September 2017, we opened the first phase of a new Scholarship and Bursary fund to not only help celebrate and promote achievement and ambition, but also help students with limited financial means benefit from an AIS education.
The scholarship programme is supported by a bursary fund. The level of fee remission offered is about 10%, but can be increased following a means-testing process which is co-ordinated privately by the school principal.
All families are welcome to apply for up to 100% fee remission. Those who hold an award receive priority for bursary assistance. For music scholars, the bursary fund may also subsidise tuition on up to two instruments (which might include voice tuition) and music theory lessons as long as the tuition is taken in school. Drama Scholars can use the bursary fund to subsidise remission from group speech and Drama tuition in school.
Scholarships are awarded for achievement and potential either in a specific, or a combination of fields. Awards are given on an entirely meritocratic basis. Although a student may not meet the criteria at one scholarship entry point, this will not exclude them from an application in a later year. In September 2018, scholarships have been offered for students entering Year 7, 8 and 9. Music scholarships were offered at Year 5 and 6.
Scholars should be leaders to their peers and work with staff to grow the co-curricular programmes. Scholars are expected to achieve recognition for themselves and help the community achieve the same by being a role model inside and outside of the classroom. Holders of this award are expected to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities. These include subject-specific clubs and societies, as well as internal and external academic competitions.
Scholars will be presented with exciting opportunities and challenges. Our academic curriculum and co-curriculum is structured to provide breadth, challenge and extension beyond standard British National Requirements. We provide excellent resources, specialist subject teaching and take great care to monitor academic progress.
We measure success in terms of exam results and the number of students attending Oxbridge, Russell Group or Ivy-league universities. Our programme will give students confidence in new challenges, resilience and help them to easily adapt to change, as well as be creative and visionary leaders.
Scholarships are awarded for the duration of the student’s time in the school. However, all Scholarships and Bursaries may be withdrawn if we find that the student is not meeting scholarship expectations.
If you would like to apply for any of our Scholarships, or if you have any enquiries related to admissions, scholarships or applications for additional funding, please contact our admissions department who will happily assist you:

In case of financial need, the value of Scholarships may be increased by the award of additional means-tested funding. Parents interested in applying for such funding should tick the required box on the Scholarship Application Form. We will then contact you to request the completion of a confidential statement of financial circumstances for consideration. Parents will then be invited to discuss the possibility for further financial support with the School Principal.
The school will consider compassionate and other circumstances including financial means to decide on the level of support provided. The school, at its discretion, may grant the title of Scholar without any financial award. Bursaries will be subject to annual review and parents may be asked to provide updated financial information. Following a review, bursaries may be increased or decreased.
