Remission of Fees

Parents who would like their son to come to Whitgift should not be deterred by financial reasons from applying, as it is the policy of the John Whitgift Foundation to make the education offered as widely available as possible by way of Scholarships, Bursaries and Boarding Awards.  Please see our Fee Assistance page for more information.
