Scholarships and bursaries


We welcome applications from candidates at 11+, 13+ and 16+ for a range of scholarships. Entries are encouraged from candidates who demonstrate excellence, talent, outstanding achievement and promise.

A Haileybury Scholarship carries 10% fee remission and successful applicants gain enormously from the additional opportunities and enrichment programmes our Scholars experience.

At 11+ entry, Haileybury offers Academic, Music, Sport and All Rounder Scholarships.

At 13+ and 16+ entry, Haileybury offers Academic, Music, Sport, Art and/or Design Technology Scholarships.

A Scholarship will normally be held for the duration of a pupil's career at Haileybury, subject to the pupil continuing to meet the standards expected of Scholars.

Depending on individual circumstances, a Scholarship and Bursary can run concurrently in the case of a Scholar requiring financial assistance.

Full details of Scholarships and Bursaries can be found in the Admissions Information booklet.


Bursaries are offered to make it possible for talented pupils or those in significant pastoral need, whose parents could not otherwise afford the fees to benefit from an education at Haileybury.

Financial assistance is based on means-testing the household income and assets using a standard formula widely used within the independent sector and may include a home visit. Parents are required to make a written statement to support their application. Bursary applications should be made 12 months prior to intended entry.

The number of awards made in any one year will vary according to the quality and circumstances of candidates and the availability of funds. The final decision will be made by the overseeing Governors’ Committee who can award either a proportion of the fees or, in exceptional cases, full fees. All bursaries are reviewed annually.

Please contact the Registrar for all Bursary and sibling discount enquiries: Iona Hutchinson, Registrar, 01992 706353.

"Bursaries are available to all applicants according to need and are not reserved only for those who have been awarded scholarships."
