Financial Assistance with Fees

Admissions > Financial Assistance with Fees

Gresham’s has always strived to ensure that children who would benefit from an education at the school are not excluded for financial reasons

The Prep and Senior Schools offer means-tested bursaries for families of limited means. Financial support is available from Year 7, ranging from 5% to 100% of annual fees.

Bursaries are available to children who win a scholarship whose parents may need additional funding to enable their child to join the school.

Applicants applying for a bursary (in any year group) are subject to the standard assessment criteria that form part of the entrance process. Places are only offered to applicants who meet the admissions criteria.

The deadlines for bursary applications for entry in September 2024 are as follows:

  • Year 7 – Friday 10th November 2023
  • Year 9 – Friday 10th November 2023
  • Year 12 – Friday 13th October 2023

All applications for bursary places are assessed on a means-tested basis and family situations – including the number of school-aged children, the financial circumstances of both parents and of any current partner of one or both parents – will be taken into account, along with benefits and other financial details. These will include assets, savings, investments and current income. Any awards made will be subject to annual means-testing thereafter.

The number of awards made each year is limited. We support as many bursary applications as possible but unfortunately we are unable to fund all applications.

In exceptional circumstances bursaries may also be available to children who do not win a scholarship. Bursaries of this nature are normally awarded following a referral from a charity and/or an external agency.
