Bursaries & Scholarships


The Edinburgh Academy is firmly of the belief that talented children should be able to benefit from an Academy education, regardless of means. Bursary awards can be made of up to 100% of school fees. These are means tested awards and are targeted towards those applicants who would benefit most from this life-changing opportunity.

Bursaries are normally prioritised for Senior School years but special consideration may be given for support in the Junior School depending on the availability of funds.

The deadline for application for fee assistance is mid-January each year. For further details on bursaries please contact our Bursary Department  bursaries@edinburghacademy.org.uk.


Scholarship opportunities at the Edinburgh Academy are available to both internal and external candidates, offering support and challenge to the most able and committed.

Pupils can apply to become Academic, Art, Music and Sports Scholars. Academic and Art awards offer personalised support, as well as a small annual grant to provide financial assistance in pursuit of the scholar’s specialist endeavours. Music Scholarships offer free tuition in one instrument or voice. Sports scholars gain access to a wide range of benefits including access to high-level coaching; competitive opportunities; mentorship in goal-setting; nutrition and hydration; sports science support and analysis; and individual development plans.

Current pupils progressing to, or joining, Geits (P7) and 2nds (S1) may apply for the Caroline Bashford (Geits/P7) and Roger Wightman (2nds/S1) Academic Medal Awards.
