Scholarships and Bursaries

At Oakham School, we have a long tradition of recognising and rewarding pupils with outstanding potential in a wide range of subjects.

All scholarships carry a fee reduction, which may be increased subject to means-testing. You can apply for more than one scholarship, but the total value of any scholarships awarded will not exceed 20%.

How to apply

Contact our Admissions team, who will be able to answer any questions and send the appropriate forms. We also recommend speaking with your child’s current headteacher, as we will ask for a confidential supporting report from them. A form for this will be sent with the application form.
