Following the abolition of the government’s Direct Grant Scheme in 1979 and the Assisted Places Scheme in 1997, Allanians rallied. Your donations to the Alumni Bursary Fund and the Schools' commitment to our founding values has helped to ensure that we can still support young people from the area who would benefit from a Dame Allan’s education.

170 of nearly 1200 pupils at Dame Allan’s receive bursaries

We want our Schools to reflect the diverse and varied community we are based in as well as the world our boys and girls are preparing for and to that end we offer a wide range of help from 10% fee remission through to 100%.

Bursary holders make up 14% of our pupils and of those nearly 6% are recipients of full bursaries

Our long-term aspiration is to build up a fund to enable as many talented pupils as possible to receive an outstanding education here.

This is your opportunity to make your mark on your old school – and help the next generation of Allanians make theirs. Thank you.

Bursaries for unanticipated hardship 

Following the far-reaching financial impact of the coronavirus on many Dame Allan’s families, the Schools set the Covid-19 Bursary Fund, a new, restricted bursary fund for unanticipated hardship.

The fund raised £66,000 to support families. The Schools have always done what they can to support our families in times of difficulty and we recognise that even at this point the pandemic will have a far reaching impact on people's livelihoods through loss of work, failure of businesses and indeed bad health. So that we can secure the futures of as many pupils as possible who, through no fault of their own, may be unable to return in September, or whose financial circumstances deteriorate during the forthcoming academic year.  

In recognition of the fact that difficult times and unanticipated financial hardship can affect any of us at any time, the Schools will be creating a longer term hardship fund - The Diamond Fund - named to express the durability and uniqueness of our Schools. We have already secured support from the Goodacre Benevolent Fund which will be matching any future donations we receive pound for pound up to £45,0000. The fund will be launched formally in the next academic year.
