Willington sees a clear position for itself in the group of Wimbledon independent schools. While we are, of course, keen to promote the best academic standards we can, we do not see this pursuit to be exclusive of a wide approach to prep school education which involves the boys in a host of sporting and cultural opportunities. While we have lots of new facilities, Willington is essentially a traditional old-fashioned prep school. We are a green-house, not a hot-house.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND BURSARIES
Scholarships and other non means-tested awards are limited to a maximum of 10% of the fees. Some pupils may receive both Scholarship and Bursary support.
Academic Scholarships. The Governors offer a small number of Scholarships for boys showing outstanding intellectual promise. These awards can continue throughout a boy’s Willington career to the end of Year 8, subject to a satisfactory annual review. Scholarships are available from Year 3 upwards and are assessed internally after joining the School. Annual reviews of a scholar’s performance will be based on assessment grades, twice-yearly reports and the Headmaster’s recommendation to Governors.
Chorister Scholarship. The Chorister Scholarship is available to all Willington boys (Years 4-8) who have successfully auditioned for our Choristers. The Scholarship covers the cost of small group singing lessons on a weekly basis, while Probationers and, once confirmed as a Chorister, for individual singing lessons. The Chorister Scholarship has a termly value of about 5% of the fees.
The Oates Scholarship. For Year 6 boys, the Oates Scholarship may be awarded to those showing outstanding ability either academically, musically, or on the sports field. These Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Headmaster.
Means-tested Bursaries. The School also offers a limited number of means-tested Bursaries, either for potential pupils whose parents declare in advance that they would otherwise be unable to afford the full fees, or for current pupils whose family circumstances change unexpectedly. Levels of bursary support awarded take into account the family income and assets, the family circumstances and the pupil benefit. In the most extreme circumstances, Bursary support can be as much as 100% of the fees. Parents who might need Bursary support should email the Bursar, email@example.com and will be sent a simple one-page initial application form.
