Aysgarth School

‘Of Oak, Not Willow’ is Aysgarth’s motto – and it utterly befits this sturdy rural prep. Traditional in outlook, atmosphere and set-up, it is a rare find. It has everything you could possibly want from an all-boys prep school: muddy-kneed pupils with a spring in their step, masses of outdoor space and a glorious countryside setting. Boys head off to the very best public schools brimming with confidence and equipped with old-fashioned values. The secret? Proper full boarding and LOTS of fun....

    Aysgarth offers up to 100 per cent fee remission to families who qualify for means-tested support as part of its bursary scheme. The level of support is based on the Aysgarth Scale of Awards, which sets out award levels in relation to a family’s financial situation. It is reviewed and revised annually by the finance and general-purposes committee to reflect changes in fee costs and is approved by the governors.

    The school also has a scholarship programme, and it is more common for pupils to enter the school on a means-tested bursary using a scholarship attempt as supporting evidence to the application.
