Christ’s Hospital is unique for a UK independent school in that it provides more bursarial support to its pupils than any other school in the independent boarding sector and has done for over 460 years. Bursaries are granted to 75% of students who receive between 5% and 100% assistance with their boarding fees according to their household income. If you apply for a bursary you will be assessed according to your means. Families on very low incomes may also be assisted with the cost of pocket money, House Funds, travel and sportswear. Our offers are subject to our normal entry criteria.
Scholarships are awarded for academic excellence and separately for ability in music, art, drama and sport. The awards are offered at 11+ (may be deferred to 13+ entry), 13+ and Sixth Form with a maximum value of 20% reduction in assessed fees. Scholarships are awarded as a result of testing carried out by the school.

There is a non-refundable registration fee of £65 payable with the registration form for both day and boarding places and a deposit of up to £1,200 (reduced for those on bursaries), payable on successful completion of the assessments and refundable against the final bill after leaving the School.
