We are committed to widening access for local families, enabling the children of those who could not otherwise afford the fees to benefit from our all-round independent school education. This corresponds to the original intention of John Lyon, who, when he founded Harrow School in 1572, stated that he wished to provide an education for children in the parish. Each year, the School makes available a small number of means-tested bursaries to pupils who demonstrate exceptional talent and potential.
If you think your son could qualify for a bursary, please contact our Registrar, Rebecca Davies.
All pupils who take the 11+ or 13+ examination in January will be considered for an Academic Scholarship. Their performance in the examination, their school reference and their interview will all be taken into consideration. Sixth Form Scholarships are awarded dependent on GCSE results.
We also award a small number of Scholarships to candidates of outstanding ability and potential in Drama, Music and Sport. Separate applications are required for these awards and assessments are held at the end of November. Scholarships normally provide for between £500 and £2,000 of the tuition fees each year. They are reviewed annually.

School Bus Service | £450 per term return | £330 per term one-way
The School operates this bus service in conjunction with Brent Community Transport. Buses collect and drop off pupils from home addresses, wherever possible. Spaces are at a premium and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
School fees are collected termly by direct debit or monthly direct debit.
Termly Payment: The annual tuition fee is divided equally across the three terms and is payable with other charges at the start of term.
Monthly Payment: This option allows you to spread the terms’ fees and other charges over several monthly installments. Unlike the termly payment, the School does not administer this service. It is managed by a third party company, School Fee Plan (SFP). At the start of each term SFP settle the fees and any extra charges in full with the School. They then collect these fees and charges from you via direct debit on a monthly basis. The transaction fee for this service is currently 2.85%. The John Lyon School is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
