Bursary Support for Boys without Scholarships

Eton has substantial financial provision designed to widen access to the school by enabling boys to come to the school who could not otherwise do so, and to allow boys to remain in the event of a change in family circumstances. No parents with a talented boy should feel that Eton is necessarily beyond their means but should be aware that the school does not have sufficient funds to satisfy all requests and currently only one in three applications is successful.

Awards are subject to a detailed means test. The best time to submit a financial assessment form is immediately after a boy has been awarded a conditional place, but the Fees and Bursaries Accountant can give provisional feedback on an earlier enquiry.

The Tutor for Admissions is happy to advise further in this area.
