Highgate School was founded as a charity by Sir Roger Cholmeley in 1565. Since then we have always given financial support to a number of pupils whom we know will thrive at Highgate but whose families cannot afford the full fees.

Currently there is a range of bursary support available. Some pupils are awarded small bursaries that supplement the significant contribution made by their parents/carers; other pupils are awarded large bursaries that cover most or all of the fees.

Bursaries are funded out of the income the school receives from sources other than fees. The Friends of Highgate School also support some awards. Further information on bursaries can be found here or contact the Bursary Office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Bursary applicants who feel they cannot afford the application fee should contact the Bursary Office before applying.

Academic scholarships are honorary and do not bring with them any remission of the school fees. Information on scholarships, exhibitions and music awards can be found here.
