Bursaries

Bursaries are awarded to pupils whose parents or guardians would not otherwise be able to pay all or part of our fees. Bursary awards of up to 100% of the tuition fees are available. 

As a rule, bursary funding is not available to Junior School boys. Parents must apply for a School Governors’ Bursary when they confirm that their son or daughter is to sit the entrance examination: bursaries are then awarded when a place at the school is offered. Where demand exceeds funds, available awards will be made on the basis of the applicant’s performance in the entrance examination. Please note the November deadlines for Bursary applications: 15th November for Sixth Form applicants and 30th November for 11+, pre-test and 13+.

They are based on a declaration of income and assets and are subject to initial and annual financial assessment.

Further details are available here or from the Bursar. The financial assessment is subject to a means testing process and the Means Testing Form is available for download.

Hardship Awards

These are given to existing pupils where a change in parents’ or guardians’ circumstances has resulted in difficulty in meeting tuition fees and may result in the child being withdrawn part way through a stage of education. They are based on a declaration of income and assets and are subject to financial assessment.

They are awarded for a short period only and priority will be given to those pupils who are either in their GCSE or A-Level years. Further details are available here or from the Bursar. The financial assessment is subject to a means testing process; please consult the Means Testing Form which is available for download.
