St Paul's School

The premier public school for clever, confident young men. We love St Paul’s for its inclusivity, its lack of pomp and ceremony and the fact that outside the classroom, everyone has heaps of other interests too. Yes, the academics are a given, but that’s not all the school is about. Here, boys can be nerdy, sporty, arty, musical – rising to any heights they want to – and it’s all because of the extraordinary teaching expertise, facilities and flexibility at their fingertips.A quick swerve off Hammersmith Bridge, the 45-acre, Thames-front campus is prime London rea...

    St Paul’s offers a generous bursary scheme, although all applicants must still meet its high academic standards to be considered. Bursaries are available for boys entering at 7+ and 8+ to the junior school or 11+, 13+ and 16+ for the senior school. They are only open for applications once a pupil is fairly far into the admissions process, given the demanding academic nature of the school and the high competition for places.

    The bursary scheme covers or part-covers school fees, which includes tuition, boarding (if applicable), games, careers-aptitude tests, learning-needs tests, certain school publications and lunch. It may also cover or part-cover educational trips, training camps, tutorial outings, examination fees, school bus fares, private music tuition and iPads/smart devices where applicable. Annual allowances are also made for school-uniform/sports-kit costs and textbooks. Any bursary awarded is reassessed at the end of each school year.
