Celebrating our past, refounding our future

Many boys at Harrow benefit from our bursaries and scholarship provision; currently a quarter of boys are in receipt of awards in the School. Of these 49 are receiving full fee remission, and 98 boys major awards in excess of 50%. This is, in major part, thanks to support from many individual donors to Harrow.

By 2025 the Governors have set the ambition to have 30% of boys on awards averaging 50% of the fees, while greatly increasing the number of high level bursaries. This can be achieved through a combination of fixed-term, 'pay-as-you-go' awards of, say five or ten years duration, or for permanently endowed awards. In the case of such endowed awards, funding of a further £10 million would allow for ten full-fee places forevermore (or a greater number if the awards are split). All awards provide life-changing opportunities to a greater number of boys who can benefit from the advantages of a Harrow education and boarding experience.

Choosing to give to the Bursaries and Scholarships fund is easy, just choose one of the following options:

Your donation to bursaries and scholarships can be used in a number of different ways:

I Have been extremely gratified by the way my scholars have taken every opportunity given to them and made the most of every moment. The scholarship scheme is a tremendously satisfying part of my life. "
