Sixth Form Bursaries

King Edward's was founded in 1553 as a Grammar School, providing an excellent education to gifted children across Hampshire - despite their financial position. 

Today we aim to provide an excellent education to gifted children willing to take advantage of everything on offer at the School through bursaries and scholarships.

For more information about the Bursaries available in the Sixth Form, please read the below.


The school offers a number of means-tested bursaries each year to pupils entering the Sixth Form. Bursaries will have a maximum value of 100% of the full fee which would value them at £21,294 in 2024-2025. In addition to taking account of all relevant sources of income, the school takes account of relevant capital assets. Applicants should note that subject to your capital assets, if your gross family income is below approximately £46,000 you may qualify for a full bursary. If your gross family income is in excess of approximately £92,000 you would not qualify for any assistance. Between these two figures a sliding scale will operate. This scale is subject to annual review. Once awarded, the entitlement to a bursary will remain with a pupil throughout his or her time at the school subject to the standard bursary terms and will be reviewed annually.


Frank Misselbrook Award for Economics and Business

For External Candidates

This award will, in the first instance, be awarded to an applicant who will be studying Economics and/or Business in the Sixth Form at King Edward's and can be up to 100% of the fee for both years. The family income need not come within the requirements for a formal bursary but we will need to establish with parents that financial assistance is justifiable. 

Sir Edward Abraham Memorial Award for Chemistry and Biology

For External Candidates 

Awards of up to 25% non means-tested can be allocated to a student from the state sector who is studying Chemistry and/or Biology in the Sixth Form at King Edward's. This can be in conjunction with a means-tested bursary and the bursarial element of the award will be calculated in accordance with the income levels already quoted.
