How to apply for a scholarship?
Our Scholarship Programme is open to all existing pupils and prospective pupils. Parents of prospective pupils are asked to register and complete the Admissions process. They will be required to sit the standard entrance assessment in the Autumn Term and those applications who meet the scholarship criteria will then be invited to attend the annual scholarship assessment week prior to the academic year of entry.

To apply for a scholarship, you must fill in a Registration Form and either tick the scholarship box on the online Registration Form. You will then be contacted by our Registrar who will confirm dates and times for Scholarship assessment. 


The school offers a bursary for each year group equivalent to 100% of fees which can be awarded to more than one candidate in that year. Once awarded and subject to annual reassessment of his parents’ financial situation, the recipient will retain the bursary until he leaves the school.

Thorpe House School offers means-tested bursaries from Reception to Year 11. If the award for the year group has not already been granted to the value of 100%, then the bursary can be applied for at any point in time. Bursary places are awarded to boys who can meet the standard entrance requirements as detailed in our 
Admissions policy and whose parents can show through a means test that they are not in the position to pay full fees. The school uses the services of a third-party organisation, Bursaries Administration Limited or BAL, who assess the data provided on the application form and conduct an interview with the family.

A candidate can be awarded up to a maximum of 50% reduction in fees. The annual bursary assessments are held during the Spring term preceding entry at the start of the academic year in September.

Sibling Discounts

For families not in receipt of other discounts, the school offers a 5% reduction on termly fees to the younger sibling of the pupil attending the School.  The discount will be applied for the duration of the elder sibling’s education at Thorpe House.

If more than 2 siblings attend the School, a further discount of 2.5% off fees will be offered to each younger sibling.
