Bursaries and Fee Policies


Bursary requests are considered on a case by case basis. Applications are means-tested and reviewed annually and focus on the financial circumstances of the family. Bursaries are normally limited to a range of 10% to 30% of the day tuition fees.

Sibling Policy

Most siblings join us at King William's College and The Buchan School. The first sibling of a student already in the School will receive a 10% Award; other siblings will receive a 30% Award. Discounts do not apply at The Buchan Nursery.

Children of Clergy Policy

A reduction of one third of the fee for boarders and one half of the fee for day pupils is allowed to children of clergy holding a benefice or Bishop's licence and residing in the Isle of Man. There is a similar arrangement for children of Methodist Ministers. Discounts do not apply at The Buchan Nursery.

Services Policy

A reduction of 15% is allowed for serving members of the Armed Forces of the Crown. Once a pupil is accepted, the reduction continues even though the parent may leave the Services. Discounts do not apply at The Buchan Nursery.

Faced with the difficult choice of our daughters remaining at a perfectly good state school in the Isle of Man, we chose to send them to King William’s College to study the International Baccalaureate. The outcome in both cases was a resounding endorsement of our decision, since King William’s College operates and delivers at a different level.
