    The college has a strong connection with the armed forces and as such offers fee remission to children from military families, ranging from 15 per cent to 25 per cent of fees depending on rank. 

    To support Cheltenham College's commitment to widening access to independent education, they also offer bursaries. Bursaries are potentially available from Year 6 onwards and are not limited to pupils who show exceptional talent – any child who meets baseline entrance requirements can apply. Bursaries are means-tested and so dependant on financial circumstances.  A bursary can be applied for alongside a scholarship (or scholarships).
