Cothill House

One of the very few full-boarding single-sex preps left in the UK, 150-year-old Cothill House is comfortable in its own skin and doesn’t feel the need to shout about itself. Traditional and quirky at the same time, it puts a high priority on giving boys time to enjoy being boys. Climbing trees, kicking balls and looking for crayfish in the streams behind the school are as much part of learning as lessons in the classroom – but for a non-selective school, its output to the top tier of public schools is really impressive.  ...

    Bursaries
    Bursaries at Cothill are overseen by the Cothill Trust, which offers students entering in Year 5 or above up to 100 per cent means-tested fee remission. The process requires a full financial review of a family’s income, expenses, assets and liabilities, together with a home visit that is undertaken by a third party on behalf of the school. The key determining factor in the decision to award a bursary is need.

    The school also offers a flat fee reduction of 20 per cent to serving members of the armed forces who are in receipt of CEA. For more information as well as a link to its bursary policy and how to apply, please see its website:
