Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees

The school offers a number of bursaries and scholarships each year. Academic and Music Scholarships are offered for entrants at 11+ and 16+. In addition, at 16+ we offer an Art, a Drama, a STEM and two Sport Scholarships. Scholarships are usually worth 10% of school fees and music scholars additionally receive free tuition on one instrument. Music Exhibitions are offered (worth 7.5% of fees) in recognition of exceptional achievement which falls just short of scholarship standard.

All bursaries are means-tested and reserved for pupils entering the Senior School. Bursaries of up to 100% are available and are fully mean-tested. The assessment is carried out on a totally confidential basis by the Director of Finance. All bursaries are subject to annual review of parental circumstances, thus ensuring that best use is made of charitable funds.

The tuition fee includes stationary and textbooks. Additionally, school lunch is compulsory for all pupils until they reach Sixth Form. The cost of lunch is £235 per term. Information about additional fees for optional extra subjects and other charges is available from the Director of Finance.
