Christ’s Hospital is committed to providing a first class education to talented boys and girls from all backgrounds by offering eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as a bursary.

The fee rates for the academic year 2023/24:
Boarding Fee: £13,970 per term
Day Fee: Years 7/8: £7,220 per term – Years 9/13: £9,090 per term

Christ’s Hospital provides free or substantially reduced cost places to over 630 of our 900 pupils each year. For further information and examples of our fee assisted places, please request a prospectus.

Reduced fees and free places are available for boarding places. If you apply for a place 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 costs and sports wear.

•  11% of pupils receive a fully supported bursary place

•  73% of pupils receive some level of bursary support

•  22% pay full fees

•  The total bursary (fee assisted) support given by Christ’s Hospital each year is over £20 m

•  Christ’s Hospital provides 15% of all 100%+ means-tested bursaries provided by Independent Schools in the UK.

For FCO and Service families who do not qualify for one of our means-tested bursaries we are able to offer a discount of 10% on full boarding fees.


Scholarships are awarded for academic excellence and for outstanding ability in music, art, drama and sport. The awards are offered to existing pupils as well as those entering the school at 13+ and Sixth Form with a value of up to 20%.

Registration Fee and Deposit

There is a non-refundable registration fee of £75 payable with the registration form for both day and boarding places and a deposit of up to £1700 (reduced for those receiving a bursary), payable on successful completion of the assessments and refundable against the final bill after leaving Christ’s Hospital. We are able to waiver the £75 registration fee, if you can provide evidence that you are in receipt of full housing benefit.

If, having accepted a place, you withdraw your child before entry, you will become liable to pay a term’s fee in lieu of notice.

Payment of Fees

Invoices are raised termly in advance and can be paid termly or by 10 monthly instalments.

Fee rates are reviewed annually.
