Bursaries

The Kingham Hill Trust offers a limited number of bursaries each year to pupils who really need to be at a boarding school, but who are unable to afford the full fees. The number of children that we are able to help is limited to funds available from the Kingham Hill Trust. 
 
Bursaries are only available for pupils normally resident in the UK. Bursaries are to a maximum of £4,000 per term and are means tested. In cases of particular need, the school can suggest a number of grant making trusts that may offer additional bursaries.
