A Hall Bursary is an amount of financial support given to a family of modest means whose son has a track record of academic achievement in their current school and whose potential, we assess, would be further nourished at The Hall. The Governors of The Hall give priority to those families whose son would not, without monetary help, have the means to attend an independent school.
Families may be able to receive up to 100% remission of the school’s normal fees. The extent of the bursary will be dependent on the family’s level of household income and assets, which would be ‘means-tested’ as part of the application process.

Future academic attainment
The purpose of the bursaries is to aid those who could benefit from an education at The Hall (and at independent senior schools of a similar nature) to do so. A certain level of future academic potential is therefore required, and candidates would need:
(a) to be strongly supported in a report from their current school on current academic performance, potential and motivation.
(b) to show evidence of adequate academic potential in assessments to be completed in January each year at The Hall School. These assessments would be based on English, Maths and Cognitive Ability tests and upon an interview.
Is your son eligible?
The School offers bursaries for boys entering Year 4 each year. The award of the bursaries will not necessarily go to those boys who show the highest academic potential, but to those who demonstrate that they have the ability to cope with the demands of life at The Hall (and at a good independent senior school afterwards) and who present the most deserving cases in terms of personal qualities and motivation, school record and family circumstances. The decision of the Headmaster (on behalf of the Governors of The Hall School Charitable Trust) on the awarding of bursaries will be final and binding.
