Culford School


Please click on individual schools below for a full statement of fees for the academic year 2024/25.

Scholarships, Exhibitioners and Bursaries

Culford has a longstanding tradition of offering Scholarships, which are worth up to 25% of fees, and Exhibitions, which are smaller awards worth up to 10% of fees, to recognise and encourage pupils who show real talent and potential.

Most scholarship examinations and assessments take place in January each year, for entry to the school in the following September; Sixth Form scholarships take place in November. There are scholarships for academic subjects and the arts, as well as for individual sports which allow children to access our high performance programme. There are also all-rounder and general sports scholarships.

Culford offers financial assistance in the form of bursaries to assist children who may not be able to attend the school without help. Bursaries are always awarded privately and may augment the value of a scholarship or exhibition award. Awards are means tested and are reviewed annually.

The Governors have agreed that the rate of interest to be charged on overdue accounts with effect from 01 September 2011 will be 1.5% per month.
