    Bursaries for teacher trainees

    Below are the bursaries available for teacher training (2022 to 2023):

    -  £24,000 in Chemistry, Computing, Mathematics and Physics

    -  £15,000 in Design and Technology, Geography and Languages (including Ancient Languages)

    St Bernard's is the best example of an uplifting and comfortable environment, every teacher is approachable, and they are always motivational and ready to help any student who needs any kind of support, which I believe is the key to a best studious environment. I hope to continue at this incredible school!
