Stamford School

The Stamford Endowed Schools have been educating students since 1532. Our Schools have a long and prestigious heritage, but everything we do at Stamford is focused on preparing young people to lead happy and fulfilling lives in the 21st century. At the start of the academic year 2023-2024 Stamford Schools opened its doors for the first time to teach students co-educationally at all stages as Stamford High School and Stamford School merged.

There is bursary information on our website Bursaries - Stamford School (

We currently provide more than £2m of bursary support to students. At Stamford we are proud of maintaining the wide socio-economic background of our students. Life-changing bursaries are available for talented students who otherwise would not be able to afford the fees to attend our School, giving them the opportunity to benefit from a Stamford education.

Financial assistance is based on means-testing the household income and assets using a standard formula widely used within the independent schools sector. Assistance with fees is available for students joining our Senior School in Years 7 to 13 and is means-tested. This process will involve an income assessment and possible home visit.

Bursary applications should be submitted at the same time as you apply for a place. All bursaries are reviewed annually, and the student’s suitability will be considered through an academic assessment as well as reviewing previous school results and the child’s school report. 

The Stamford Schools Scholarship provision is designed to recognise boys and girls with outstanding talents and skills in a variety of fields, and to help develop those talents and skills during their time at the school. Scholarships are awarded on entry to Stamford School, although there are later opportunities to gain a Scholarship once a pupil is at the school. Scholarship Awards will be made to students entering in Years 7, Year 9 and Year 12.

Stamford Scholars benefit enormously from the additional opportunities and enrichment programmes offered to them. Scholarships are awarded on merit and do not carry a fee remission or financial award. All scholarships are kept under review and are reassessed after a period of two years.
