The British Section is keen to ensure that children who demonstrate the ability and motivation to benefit from a bilingual education are not prevented from doing so for financial reasons.
The British Section aims to do this through the British Section Scholarship Fund, set up in 2017, which offers means-tested financial support to help parents/guardians with limited resources pay British Section fees.
By removing financial and social barriers, we can give deserving students the keys to an educational programme that can help them get the best possible start.
More information about Eligibility and Assessment Criteria can be found below in the Scholarship Fund Policy and FAQs.
Thanks to parent donations and corporate sponsorship, we aim to be able to offer a full or partial scholarship each year to support students who meet our means-test through the final three years leading up to the Baccalauréat Français International (BFI). See below for a letter from the first recipient of the British Section Scholarship Fund.
