Scholarships and Bursaries

At Oakham School, we offer a range of scholarships to recognise academic, all-round, creative, or sporting potential and excellence. 

There are two types of scholarship available: those that carry a small fee reduction and honorary awards. Additional financial support is available through means-tested bursaries and candidates can apply for both a scholarship and a bursary. 

Arkwright Scholarships for Sixth Form entrants

Oakham is affiliated with the Arkwright Scholarships Trust, a national award scheme for pupils wishing to study Design and Technology and/or Maths at an advanced level.

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.
