Our selection process is designed to determine whether a child will flourish in a busy boarding school environment with a strong academic ethos, enjoying the wide range of opportunities on offer, and feel at home at Christ’s Hospital.

Parents are advised to start the admissions process as early as possible and ideally at least 18 months before their child would be due to enter the school.

Places at the school are academically selective and are offered on the basis of Christ’s Hospital’s own assessments.

We welcome day students who are within a commutable distance from the School. Day students enjoy all the advantages of a top boarding school with access to an exceptional broader curricular programme.

Bursaries at Christ’s Hospital are available to applicants for boarding places only.

Should a day applicant be successful in receiving a scholarship we can occasionally, depending on individual circumstances, offer a small amount of additional fee assistance to support the scholar in taking up their place at the school.
