Financial Support

HMC independent schools promote social diversity and the growth of financial support for parents across our schools provides opportunities to benefit for pupils from all backgrounds. Over a third of pupils in HMC independent schools across the UK received help with their fees in 2019/20 and half of this was in the form of means-tested bursaries. Financial support is offered in a variety of forms:

  • Academic Scholarships
  • Specialist Scholarships for Sports, Music, Arts, Drama and ICT
  • Means-Tested Bursaries
  • Armed Forces Discounts
  • Government Grants

To find out more about the different forms of financial support on offer, please contact the schools directly.
