Each year the trustees consider several applications for bursaries towards school fees. As funds are limited the trust currently has a policy of awarding bursaries to existing pupils only. Parents should contact the school office for information on how to apply for a bursary from the A.S. Neill Summerhill Trust and from other trusts too.
The Trust also supports pupils who cannot otherwise afford extracurricular activities.
Between 2007 and 2012 the Trust awarded 22 bursaries totalling £28,600.
A very big thank you to all our donors who have so generously supported the spirit of Summerhill.
"My financial contribution to Summerhill is a way of supporting Neill's philosophy and of helping to sustain a place where children can be children"
