We accept promising boys from families of limited means: boys who can get on with others, thrive in a boarding school environment and have the potential to learn and succeed. These boys will receive a fully funded, wraparound education with all expenses covered, right down to sports and music lessons, uniforms and school trips. Essentially, they receive all the benefits of a private boarding school education, without the fees. It is truly life changing.
