What is the CV34 Award Programme?

Warwick Schools Foundation benefits from a scheme offering the possibility of free or discounted places based on financial need for candidates at 11+ and 16+. Within the bursaries available from the Foundation is the CV34 Award. These funds are specifically earmarked for children whose families live within the CV34 postcode and we are grateful to King Henry VIII Endowed Trust and The Charity of Sir Thomas White, Warwick for their financial support.

The support available is based on a combination of the following: 

  • Financial need - determined by a means testing assessment
  • Your child's performance - based on exam results, the interview and the report received from your child's current school
  • Overall demand - bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, as limited funds are available.

If your child qualifies for a bursary place, they will also receive support towards other school costs. This will be applied at the same rate as the bursary – so for example, if the bursary covers 50% of fees, then half of the amounts in the table below will also be covered.

Example for 2024/25 academic year:
Uniform – up to £750 over 7 years (between Year 7 and Year 13)
Essential curriculum trips – up to £600 over 7 years (between Year 7 and Year 13)
Bring Your Own Device – up to £1,000 over 7 years (to cover two devices in that time)

Please note that if your child qualifies for free school meals, then there will be no additional charge for lunches.

Over 17% of pupils across the Foundation are recipients of some financial assistance and we are proud of the creativity, diversity and ambition within our community.

Am I eligible to apply?

The amount of support offered is on a sliding scale. You could be eligible if your total gross household income does not exceed £69,158. You are likely to be successful with your application if:

Savings

Your family does not have considerable capital savings, investments or equity.

Other Indicators of Wealth

You do not have indicators of wealth such as new and luxury cars, owning second homes or considerable property in the form of land.

Household Living Arrangements

In the instance where you are separated from your partner, both of your incomes do not exceed the gross household sum of £69,158.

Where there are special circumstances, for instance a 'No Contact Order', we can offer additional support with your application, so please do get in touch.

Wider Family Support

Other wider family members, un-related adults or outside sources do not contribute to household costs, which would otherwise be used as a priority for school fees.

Other School Fees

You are not already paying full fees for another child elsewhere.

Please note, there is a competitive element to bursary grant, and your child’s results in the entrance examination, interview, and report will be taken into consideration alongside means testing and the overall demand.

Supporting you through the application process

If you have any questions or would like further guidance with your application, you can speak to our dedicated Community Liaison Officer, Clare Sawdon. Clare is on hand to help explain the application process and give you a better sense of life at the school of your choice.
