Eton School

Introduction

Eton was founded by King Henry VI in 1440 and lies just across the river Thames from the pretty Berkshire town of Windsor; most famous for its royal castle. Throughout its history Eton has been one of the leading independent schools in the UK and it continues to provide a stimulating all-round education, coupled with academic excellence.

Eton is a boys’ boarding school with around 1,300 pupils. Our pupils join at the age of 13 (with a few joining in the sixth form) and continue right through until they are 18.

Ours is a modern, forward-thinking school which embraces new opportunities within teaching and learning. Tradition remains important and still shapes some of our guiding principles, but it is a willingness to innovate which has seen the school thrive for almost six centuries.

We offer an excellent sports and activities programme enabling boys to identify and develop their own skills and strengths, within a supportive environment.

We welcome talented boys, whatever their background and can offer significant levels of financial support (up to 100% of full fees).

If you’re considering sending your son here please do come and visit and experience Eton for yourselves.

Entrance Requirements

Welcome to Eton College and thank you for your interest in our school.

Everyone at Eton works hard to create an exciting, stimulating and caring environment, to enable each boy to reach his full potential. All our pupils are also expected to make their own contribution to school life.

To achieve this we’ve developed an Admissions process which looks at a boy’s current and potential academic ability as well as whether he will be happy in our boarding environment. Last year we welcomed boys from 114 different state and independent schools.  

Eton is committed to supporting pupils with disabilities and also has a Learning Support team for boys with special educational needs.  

At the point when a boy is offered a place, his family’s financial background is not taken into account - the place is awarded on merit. Families who feel they may be eligible can then apply for a means-tested bursary. There are around 1,300 pupils at the school and of those around 21% currently receive financial support towards their fees (averaging a 66% reduction), with 73 boys currently receiving a 100% reduction. Although £6.6 million is budgeted for bursaries in 2016/17, it is still not possible to support all of the applications.
