Bursaries

Charterhouse is able to offer a limited number of bursaries each year for pupils entering either Year 9 or Year 12, with preference given to those who gain a Scholarship or an Award (not including Exhibitions), who would benefit from a Charterhouse education, but whose parents are unable to afford the fees.

All bursaries are means-tested and are subject to funds being available. The award is reviewed annually for changes in parents’ financial circumstances and may be adjusted as a result. Awards may cover up to 100% of the school fee. Eligibility for financial assistance is based on both parents’ income and assets using a standard formula widely used within the independent sector, and may include a home visit by Bursary Administration Ltd (BAL), the School’s agent.

Year 9 Entrance Bursaries

Charterhouse offers two Year 9 Entrance Bursaries annually. These bursaries are awarded through academic competition when the children are in Year 6. Selection is based on the results of the ISEB Common Pre-test and the Interview and Activity Afternoons. School reports and testimonials are also considered.

Sixth Form Entrance Bursaries

Bursaries are available to enable children from the local area to join the Sixth Form as boarding or day pupils, to study A Levels or the IB Diploma Programme. 

Candidates should have strong academic potential, an enthusiastic approach to co-curricular interests, and the self-confidence to flourish in a large independent school.

Parents must indicate that they require a bursary at the time of registration and they will be invited to complete a Bursary Application Form. Any award will be confirmed at the same time that an offer of a place at the School is made.

Enquiries should be addressed to the Director of Admissions: +44 (0)1483 291501 or admissions@charterhouse.org.uk.

Occasionally late places come available after the registration deadlines have passed. Please email our admissions team if you wish to make an enquiry.
