    Uppingham offers a means-tested bursary scheme as both an augmentation of its scholarship programme and as a small standalone provision, with up to 110 per cent fee remission available depending on need. Priority is given to pupils who have already qualified for a scholarship in academics, music, art, design and technology, sports or drama, as well as science for 16+ and an all-rounder Award for 13+ applicants. Beyond this, support is allocated based on potential as well as availability of funds.
