Bursaries for 2020 entry
Bursaries are awarded on the basis of performance in the Entrance Examination, assessment(s) and interview. Unfortunately, not all families who are eligible for a bursary will be offered one.
Parents of prospective day pupils, whose family income is less than approximately £90,000 a year, (exact figures are available directly from the Whitgift Foundation), may apply for a bursary (an income-related fee reduction). There is a generous, but limited, annual budget for bursaries for those who qualify in terms of their income and residency.
Bursaries are not available to boarding students.
Further information about Whitgift’s bursary programme and the application form, for 2020 entry, will be available online shortly.
The Whitgift Bursary Application Form must be downloaded from the website, and submitted as a paper copy to: The Whitgift Foundation, North End, Croydon, Surrey, CR9 1SS.
