Benenden School would like to enable more girls whose families cannot even begin to afford a Benenden education to take up a place at Benenden. To this end, in addition to the School’s existing scholarship and bursary programme, the Benenden School Trust is raising money to fund a number of Trust Awards to local primary school children. These 100% free places are means tested and will enable a far broader range of talented girls to come to Benenden. Where necessary, the Trust can also provide a Trust Award holder with an additional allowance to fund uniform and other extras. Each award lasts for the full seven years of a student’s school career at Benenden, subject to annual review.
Girls in Year Six of the following local Primary Schools are eligible to apply (a 7.5 mile radius of Benenden School).
- Benenden CE Primary School
