    Bursaries
    Whitgift is fully committed to helping families who could not afford the full fees, and through the John Whitgift Foundation, the school devotes over £2 million to bursaries each year. The school has its own charity for bursaries and partnership work, Whitgift For All, and sets aside funds for families struggling with short-term financial hardship. Last year, over 600 Whitgift students received some form of financial assistance, with a growing number benefiting from ‘Headmaster’s Awards’, which cover the fees in full, as well as uniform, a laptop, trips and exam fees. Whitgift also currently supports two refugees and a handful of students with fully-funded full-boarding places via RoyalSpringboard.
