The Coindre Bursary

Coindre Bursaries are given in memory of Father André Coindre, founder of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.

In September each year, the College accepts applications for the following academic year. St Columba’s College offers a number of these bursaries, up to the value of the full fee, to Roman Catholic boys, who will enter Prep 3 (Year 3) or Form 1 (Year 7) in September 2018.

The closing date for these applications is the end of October.

Please apply in writing to Brother Daniel St Jacques, Dean, St Columba’s College, King Harry Lane, St Albans, Herts AL3 4AW or to Brother Daniel’s email address,
