    Sandroyd offers financial assistance to families who would otherwise be unable to take up offers of places. These awards are means tested and subject to a full financial history and annual review. They also offer fee assistance for the sons and daughters of servicemen and women killed or wounded on operations. In the occasion of a successful application, the child will be invited to the School for assessment and interview, after which the decision to award assistance is made by the School.
