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.

I loved King William’s College from the start. I made up my mind within an hour of our time there that I wanted my son to attend. You have to come to College to understand what makes it stand out from the rest. It is a place of genuinely caring and friendly people. Another aspect of College we love is its vast international community. Our son has made some great friends and as a result has come to appreciate and respect other cultures and traditions. Our son loves College. He loves the independence to make choices, the easy access he has to his tutors, the opportunity to make his own mistakes and learn from them, but most of all, he loves the fact that expert assistance is always a breath away.
