Bursaries for British Forces Families

"I am a self-proclaimed boarding veteran... I believe one of the strongest parts of the school’s boarding system is the pastoral care...The structure of both the Prep School and Senior School day teaches a child discipline and how to take care of oneself. The weekends are never boring thanks to the facilities the school provides.  The teachers, the facilities and most importantly the people are irreplaceable... and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else."  Adi, L6th student (Gurkha family)

British Forces families qualifying for the Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA) will be required to pay no more than 10% of fees payable for full boarding places. Please see the table in the drop down below for details.

Our boarding facilities are outstanding, providing a wonderful home away from home for our boarders. All boarding houses have a mix of UK and overseas, boarding and day pupils; the hallmark of the rich and stimulating community you will find at the College.
