Funded Places

Funding from educational charitable trusts

Magdalen Court School is most fortunate in having several charities who have assisted with places at our school and continue to help us in this delightful way. Alongside these, The Family Trust also helps parents with fees in cases of hardship or for gifted & talented children in a wide range of areas such as: 

  • Music 
  • Dance
  • Sport
  • Art
  • ICT
  • Academic

These financial arrangements follow a 3 stage approach:

  1. Children and their families arrange a visit to Magdalen Court School
  2. If parents wish, they then arrange for their child to attend a taster day
  3. Once a school place has been offered, parents can apply to a number of trusts asking for financial help with the school fees. A directory of these trusts is available in Exeter Central Library. In the case of a gifted and talented bursary the school may be able to advise you where to apply.

You will need to apply for funding as soon as possible as the number of awards granted each year are limited.

Funding from Devon County Council

Some children with ECHPs can get funding to attend Magdalen Court School if it can be proved that their needs were not able to be met elsewhere. Mrs Inglis, a member of our team of dedicated staff helps with these requests and has a great deal of experience in this field. Please note that to date this can be a lengthy process and it can take time to for the funding to be awarded.
