Parents of prospective day students, whose family income is less than approximately £85,000 a year (exact figures are available from the John Whitgift Foundation), may be eligible to apply for a bursary. The John Whitgift Foundation calculates Bursary Awards, which may cover up to the entire fee.  Demand for Bursary Awards is extremely high, therefore not all families who are eligible for a bursary can be offered one, as there is a generous, but limited, annual budget.

Bursaries are awarded to day students who perform exceptionally well in the entrance examinations and who show outstanding talent and/or potential.

To apply for a bursary, families must first register their interest by completing the John Whitgift Foundation, Bursary Interest Form and questionnaire online, at the John Whitgift Foundation. https://www.johnwhitgiftfoundation.org/apply-for-a-bursary/

The closing dates for Bursary Registrations of Interest are: 

  • 10+ - Friday 26 November 2021
  • 11+ - Friday 26 November 2021
  • 13+ - Friday 5 November 2021
  • 16+ - Friday 5 November 2021

Following the entrance examinations, Whitgift will notify the John Whitgift Foundation of the students who are being considered for an offer and bursary, and the Foundation will invite those families to complete a full Bursary Application online.

Successful Bursary Award recipients will be notified at the time of the offer of a place.
