Financial Aid: An Overview

Thanks to generations of benefactors and supporters we are fortunate to have a well-established endowment, which allowed us to budget £7.2 million for scholarships and bursaries in the 2019-2020 financial year. Bursaries are means-tested awards which are given to help support families who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford some, or all of the school fees. An independent company will assess the family finances during a home visit and make a recommendation to us. This isn’t a test but is designed to produce a fair assessment.

We support as many applications as possible. In 2018/19, 255 pupils received a means-tested bursary (averaging a 67% reduction in fees), with 90 students paying no fees at all.

Unfortunately, we still cannot fund all of the applications and so our Development team is working hard with current supporters to try to grow our funds still further. 

For further information, please contact our Fees and Bursaries Accountant.

A gift to Financial Aid ensures that Eton continues its long heritage of transforming the lives of talented boys.
