Loretto School in Musselburgh has taken steps to widen access to children from lower income families.

From September, a new means-tested bursary worth 105% of school fees will be available to those struggling to pay fees, along with the additional costs of uniform and extra-curricular activities.

The school has been under direction to widen access since October last year, when it was found to have failed the charity test.

A review by OSCR, Scotland’s charities watchdog, found that annual fees –ranging from more than £10,000 for a junior day pupil to almost £26,000 senior boarder – were “unduly restrictive”.
