In certain circumstances, we can offer means-tested financial awards to families from a broad range of income levels. The goal of our bursary programme is twofold: to attract and enrol pupils from diverse backgrounds; and to offer our unique educational opportunity to deserving pupils whose family has a genuine financial need. Please see our Bursaries section for more information.
For those families with more than one child in the school, we reduce 5% of the actual fee for the second child, 20% for the third, 40% for the fourth, and 80% for the fifth child.
Sons and daughters of clergy may qualify for a bursary equating to 10% of the relevant fees.
Sons and daughters of members of the UK armed forces qualify for reduced fees. For 2019/20 the fee for each pupil is CEA (including parental contribution) plus £350 per term.
We offer a wide range of financial awards in the form of scholarships (Academic, All Round, Art, Drama, Mathematics and Sport). These range from 10% to 50% of day fees and are awarded based on merit. Applicants need to apply before our assessments, which are held in January each year. For more details, please see our Scholarships section.
We also offer music scholarships; please see below for more information.
We are one of just four schools in the UK able to offer means-tested awards of up to 100% of fees, provided by the UK government through the Music and Dance Scheme (MDS). These are available only to a small number of exceptionally talented musicians. Our Music Scholarships are another option for talented musicians who are ineligible for or not awarded an MDS grant. Our Music Scholarships range from 10% to 50% of day fees and are awarded based on merit. Please see our Music Scholarship page for more information.
All of our choristers are eligible for a non-means tested fee reduction, and we also help families source further funding from trusts and foundations. Applicants need to arrange their pre-audition before Christmas in order to be considered for our main auditions, which are held in January of each year. Once pupils have finished their time in the Choir, they receive a discount for the rest of their time at the School.
