Bursaries are 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.


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.
