Scholarships & bursaries

Here at Gordonstoun, we encourage diversity for the benefit of all our students.

So, we welcome applications from children of all walks of life, regardless of their financial background. All we ask is they want to engage with our broad curriculum and contribute to our community. Some will come from schools which have not prepared them for the English GCSE and A Level academic curriculum and we make allowances for that. Around a third of our pupils receive financial support and to fund this extensive scholarship programme we use our own resources, draw on a designated scholarship fund and seek funding from external Trusts and benefactors.

Scholarships come with 10% reduction of the fees. Additional bursaries (fee reductions) can be given, based on means testing. If you’d like more information on this, please contact Alison More, our experienced and helpful fees administrator, on
