Christ’s Hospital is committed to providing a first class education to talented boys and girls from a broad social and financial background by offering eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as a bursary and may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on fees payable.
The fee rates for the academic year 2019/20:
Boarding Fee: £11,950 per term
Day Fee: Years 7/8: £6,170 per term – Years 9/13: £7,770 per term
Bursaries are only available for boarding places. 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 sports wear. Our offers are subject to our normal entry criteria.
• 13% of pupils receive a fully supported place
• 73% of pupils receive some level of bursary support
• 24% pay full fees
• The total annual bursary (fee assisted) support given by Christ’s Hospital is over £18.2 m
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 between 5% and 20%.
Registration Fee and Deposit
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 £1200 (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 £65 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.
“Whilst other school fee assistance schemes have come and gone, Christ’s Hospital has stuck to its charitable aims since it was founded in 1552: educating the financially, socially and otherwise needy for free, or at a reduced rate, in a caring boarding environment. Today these pupils sit happily alongside the full fee payers and the School’s pupil profile is one of which its royal founder, Edward VI, would have been proud.” Kate, Former Christ’s Hospital, parent
