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.

Admissions Handbook 2018–19


Scholarships may be competed for at different stages in the Senior School. These reward pupils who demonstrate academic excellence or outstanding talent in Art, Sport or Music. Scholarship monies awarded to successful pupils each year are held by the school and paid to the pupil on completion of their studies, or on their 17th birthday if they have already left school.

Scholarship application forms may be applied for by contacting the Admissions Department at admissions@edinburghacademy.org.uk or 0131 624 4987. The deadline for scholarship application is the same date as Entrance Testing which takes place in early January each session.
