Scholarships and Bursaries


Scholarships are available for boys in Years 3 to 8 with great academic, sporting, musical or artistic abilities, as well as to the good all-rounder. They are generally to the value of 10% of the tuition fees.

If you wish your son to apply for a Scholarship, please let us know when you are indicating your interest in a place at Lockers Park. We will then assess your son to determine whether his skills meet our Scholarship requirements. If your son joins Little Lockers (our pre-prep), we will contact you when he is in Year 2 if we believe he could be eligible for a Scholarship.

A Scholarship may be boosted by a means-tested bursary.


Our Governors are committed to broadening access to Lockers Park by offering to eligible parents of boys in Years 3 to 8 means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees.

We welcome applications from pupils whose abilities indicate they could make the most of a place at Lockers Park, but whose means and circumstances would otherwise prevent them from joining the school.  While we wish we could offer a bursary to every family who inquiries, because a bursary is funded by the tuition fees paid by our fee-paying families, and especially considering we are a much smaller school than most, we have certain standards that we require boys to meet. It is important to us that we are confident we will be able to support such pupils with a successful bursary application to an independent senior school after their education at Lockers Park.

Bursaries are awarded in the form of a discount of typically 10% to 20% of school fees, and in exceptional circumstances, to up to 100%, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants.

Bursary applications are thoroughly researched by an external party, and can include a visit to the applicant’s home, to ensure the information has been accurately represented, and that bursaries are fairly awarded to the most eligible pupils.

Draper Bursary

In honour of our first Headmaster Montague Draper who founded the school back in 1874, we have set up the Draper Bursary as part of our 150th Celebrations.  This sits alongside the other bursary initiative we have at Lockers Park.

The Draper Bursary will provide assistance for boys joining Lockers Park at any age.  It supports talented and deserving boys who have the most to gain from Lockers Park, and whose families could not otherwise consider a private prep school education… read more
