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 Mr Tim Mackay at tmackay@edinburghacademy.org.uk or 0131 624 4916, or download our Admissions handbook.


Scholarship opportunities at the Edinburgh Academy are available to both internal and external candidates, and have been carefully designed to align with our goal that pupils are supported and challenged in developing as independent, curious, creative, collaborative and resilient learners.

Pupils can compete for Academic, Art, Music and Sports Scholarships. Academic, Art and Sports awards offer individualised, one-to-one mentoring, designed to support the scholar in the realisation of his or her ambitions and potential, as well as an annual grant to provide financial assistance in pursuit of the scholar’s specialist endeavours. Music Scholarships offer free tuition in one instrument or voice. 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.
