Whitgift School

Successful, popular and a real contender on the London day-school circuit, Whitgift has wowed us. Applications are rising, academic results are stellar, sport spectacular, the pace of change and innovation terrific and the social conscience inspiring. This is a school ‘for bright boys from all backgrounds’, says head Chris Ramsey – and with a mammoth community of 1,500 pupils, it’s also a place that doesn’t do anything by halves.

Whitgift’s 45-acre Croydon campus is exceptionally beautiful – and the absolute antithesi...

    Day fees for Year 6 at Whitgift School are £6,880 per term.

    Whitgift’s bursary scheme is financed by its parent organisation the John Whitgift Foundation: across its three schools it currently gives some form of financial support to 48 per cent of all students, totalling over £5m a year. Offers are means-tested and academically selective, with the Foundation suggesting that a household earning around £19,000 a year gross would qualify for full or near-full fee remission, up to a ceiling of around £93,000. It is worth noting that performance in entrance exams is used to select bursary recipients and that meeting the financial requirements is not a guarantee of being offered one.

    Whitgift is also partnered with Royal Springboard, which provides charitable assistance to students who are or have been in the care system, or who come from areas of extremely high social deprivation. More information about Whitgift’s bursary scheme or its affiliation with Royal Springboard can be found on its website, as well as a link to the wider John Whitgift Foundation:
