Pupils with ‘Potential’ can apply for a 100% Bursary at Eaton House Schools

Last Updated on : 20th October 2022

Do you know of a bright young mind that would thrive on the challenge of an Eaton House Schools education? If you do, then he or she could join the many generations of children educated at these wonderful single sex schools since 1897 – absolutely free.

Through its new Eaton House Foundation, Eaton House Schools is proud to announce that it is offering three 100% fully funded bursaries for entry into Year 3 (age 7). These bursaries are for children that have the potential to benefit from an Eaton House education.

The initiative is the school’s first fully paid bursary scheme. A bursary is worth 100% of school fees, which include lunches, stationery and day trips. Residential trips are also included, as is support for uniform and equipment costs.

For September 2023, there is one place available at the Eaton House The Manor Boys’ School in Clapham, one place at Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School at the same site, and one place at Eaton House Belgravia near Sloane Square.

The bursaries are available to individuals from the local community who may not have access to a private education otherwise, and individual incomes and circumstances will be taken into account. Candidates in Year 2 at state primary schools are encouraged to apply and will receive a warm welcome.

Bursaries are awarded based on a number of criteria, which include a positive reference from the pupil’s current Head and a strong performance in an interview with the Head of the Eaton House School to which they are applying. We also look for a performance that indicates potential in our 7+ English and mathematics assessments, and a standardised

cognitive ability assessment.

Ultimately, the prospective pupil must be deemed by the Head to be able to make good academic progress following admission and to participate in the wider life of the school. We often consider other mitigating factors, such as health and family circumstances. Our aim is to make this process as easy and comfortable as possible for all the children that take part –and, hopefully, fun!

To find out more, contact us at or ring Miss Sam Fielding, Head of Admissions, on 0203 917 5050 for a confidential chat about your child’s special potential and the application process.
