We firmly believe that every talented child should be able to receive a Morrison’s Academy education and all the benefits and opportunities it presents. Consequently, a number of Bursaries are means-tested and awarded each year.
Awards are primarily available to new pupils entering Primary Five and above. These are principally determined by an analysis of the family’s financial position to identify what level of assistance may be required. They are, however, also dependent upon the availability of funds at the time.
Applications will also be considered from existing parents who have experienced a change in financial circumstances, such as loss of income or bereavement, which threatens the pupil’s continued attendance at Morrison’s Academy.
In all cases, the assistance is determined by the extent of financial need, and applicants are required to complete an application form that assesses family income and capital assets. In exceptional cases, full fee awards may be available, but the majority of awards fall in the range of 20% to 60% of the tuition fee. In this way, Morrison’s Academy strives to ensure that Bursaries are used to widen access to the School and to assist the greatest number of parents who require support.
