Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries
Scholarships and Bursaries
Please see below for information about the Scholarships and Bursaries on offer to Warwick School pupils. We have also compiled a short booklet with an overview of each of the awards that are available. Please click here to view.
Governor Scholarships are awarded to boys who excel academically. Scholarships tend to be awarded up to the value of 20% of fees, based on the results of the entrance examination and interview.
Students registered for the examination at 11+ / 13+ are automatically considered for these scholarships and awards are based on the candidates’ performance in the entrance examination and the interview.
One or two additional Governor Scholarships are usually awarded to boys at 13+ who have shown a very high level of attainment throughout their first two years at Warwick School.
A further two Governor Scholarships are usually awarded to boys moving into the Sixth Form on the basis of excellent work throughout the lower years at Warwick School and GCSE grades.
A scholarship can be supplemented by a means tested bursary.
Music Scholarships are available to students of exceptional musical and academic ability.
- Instrumental Scholarships awarded on merit by the Head Master
- Choral Scholarships awarded in association with The Collegiate Church of St. Mary
- N.B. Applications for 2021 entry is now closed.
- Senior School Scholarship auditions have been held for Sept 2021 entry. A date for Sept 2022 entry will be uploaded as soon as available.

Music Scholarships tend to be awarded up to the value of 20% of fees, based on musical ability and potential with a satisfactory level of achievement in the entrance examination. It is important to stress that there is no absolute standard as musical ability and potential are both assessed, however it is expected that boys are approximately Grade 5 standard on their first instrument.
For further details regarding the music scholarships please click below.
Through the generous benefaction of Mr Percy Swiffen, an external charity, at least two Choral Scholarships, each to the value of £1,650 per annum, may be awarded each year to boys, aged between 7 and 11 years on 1 September, who are either entering or attending Warwick School and the Choir of St. Mary’s Collegiate Church, Warwick.
A Choral Scholarship is valid for the duration of a chorister’s career in both Warwick School and St. Mary’s Collegiate Church Choir unless he is awarded a Governors’ Scholarship, Bursary or other remission of fees on entry to the Senior School in which case the value of the Scholarship is reviewed.
The Choral Scholarship will be used in its entirety to remit part of the school fees at Warwick School. An ex-chorister is awarded a pension of not less than half of the Choral Scholarship originally awarded while still a member of Warwick School, for a period of time not exceeding the period of time that he had held the Choral Scholarship. The value of Choral Scholarships and Pensions are reviewed annually by the Trustees in light of changes in school fees.
Warwick School, as part of the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, benefits from a scheme offering the possibility of free or discounted places based on financial need for candidates at 11+ and 16+.
Additional financial help may also be available for educational visits, uniforms, transport and lunches.
Within the bursaries available from the Foundation, are the CV34 Awards. These funds are specifically earmarked for children whose families live within the CV34 postcode and the school is grateful to King Henry VIII Endowed Trust and The Charity of Sir Thomas White, Warwick for their financial support.
The support available is based on the following
1) Financial Need - determined by a means testing assessment
2) Your child's performance - based on exam results, the interview and the report received from your child's current school
3) Overall demand - bursaries are awarded on a competitive basis, as limited funds are available.
Means testing is established based on relevant 'net income', assessed on completion of the bursary application form. The amount of discount is offered on a sliding scale, and if your household income exceeds £40,000 after tax or you have substantial assets, you are unlikely to qualify.
You will be required to provide detailed financial information including income, expenditure and details of your net assets. The financial analysis is based on both parents, regardless of current living arrangements. Full terms and conditions of the assessment are included in the bursary application form.
If you are below the income threshold and would like to apply for a bursary, please download and complete the bursary application form and send to the Admissions Department with your son's completed application form for entry. Please note the closing date for bursary application for entry in September 2021 has now closed. If you have any questions please contact email@example.com.
Please be advised that in some cases the Foundation reserves the right to attend a home visit in order to discuss the financial schedule.

Below are details of the insurance schemes which are available to you via the Foundation on the basis of the terms and conditions set by the insurers. Brochures, information and application forms are available below.
The Foundation does not refund fees for days when a pupil is absent for any reason including ill health. If your child is absent, no discount will be applied to your bill. However, a scheme is available via our insurance broker which provides fee refunds in the event of the pupil having five or more days’ illness (usually consecutive). Please note, in light of the Covid-19 crisis, this excludes absences as a direct result of pandemics and epidemics. We would also advise that in cases of highly serious health issues, the Foundation may consider assistance regardless of whether a parent has this insurance.
Opt in to subscribe and complete the form on page 2 of the leaflet (available on our website).
The cost is 1.37% of the termly fee (day pupils) or 1.05% (boarders) added to your termly bill (ie the basic termly fee you pay before any extras).
Private medical cover is provided with AXA PPP Healthcare. Please see the brochure (available on our website) for more information or visit www.axappphealthcare.co.uk/pupilshealthscheme.
Opt in and complete the AXA PPP Healthcare Application form in the brochure to subscribe.
The cost is £112.00* per term added to your termly bill. *Fees include Insurance Premium Tax at 12%
The Foundation’s general insurances includes only a limited form of cover with claim value limit of £250 subject to the claimant having no other relevant insurance in place. Therefore, this scheme is provided offering cover to the value of £7,500. Warwick School Boarders may particularly want to consider this. You may wish to talk to your home insurance provider before deciding whether you wish to take out this cover.
Opt in and return the form in the brochure (available on our website) to subscribe.
The cost is £12.60* per term added to your termly bill. *Fees include Insurance Premium Tax at 12%
This provides one-off payments in case of significant injuries which result in permanent disability or death and payments if dental treatment or hospital stays are required following an accident.
All pupils are automatically included. Our insurers will only offer this on an ‘all in’ basis and therefore all pupils are covered at no additional cost to parents.
Recommendation: please consider arranging Disruption to Income Cover.
Insurances are available to provide cover in case the fee payer’s income is disrupted, for example, through redundancy or long-term illness. The Foundation’s insurers do not provide such a scheme, but you can make your own arrangements through other providers and we would strongly advise parents to do so.
(Please note, cover is only finalised when the premium is paid with the school fees.
Late payment of fees may mean you are not covered from the start of term.)
