We believe that City's vast range of educational opportunities must be open to pupils who will benefit most from learning here, not just those who can afford the fees. We are committed to providing school places to pupils regardless of financial means and we therefore offer bursaries and scholarships for entry into year 7 and year 12. Approximately 25% of our current senior school pupils receive some form of financial assistance.

Bursary awards range from smaller awards of 25% right up to 100% (full fee) awards. These awards are means tested. As we do not offer academic scholarships at City, we encourage you to apply for a bursary award if you think that you would qualify, even if for a smaller award rather than a full fee award.

Bursaries are awarded if a pupil is successful in the entrance exam and interview, her family’s bursary application is successful, and if there are sufficient funds available in the bursary fund. Our bursaries are awarded thanks to the generosity of benefactors, the City of London Corporation and the City Livery Companies, with whom the school maintains a strong and special link.

The worth of a bursary is awarded on a sliding scale, depending on your means. We are also able to award additional assistance to recipients of full fee bursaries. This covers such costs as curriculum-based school trips, travel to and from school by public transport and uniform costs.

Please email or if you have any questions at all about bursary applications.

The bursary application process is online and a link will be sent to all those who have indicated that they may wish to apply for a bursary once registration closes.
