We take great pride being able to offer financial assistance to the families of talented boys who otherwise could not afford private education.
Each year there are funds available for free and subsidised bursary places at all entry points. As with all other entrants, pupils hoping to benefit from a bursary must gain a place at the school on academic merit. Financial assistance is offered on a means-tested basis.
