A Better Chance Bursaries

A Better Chance Bursaries provide full-fee places to talented and deserving children from less privileged families who are not able to afford the fees.


Bursaries are part of our heritage – they have been helping Millhillians for over 200 years and enrich our schools as well as having a life changing impact on recipients.


Meet Theo

Theodor Sergiou is a Sixth Form pupil in McClure House who will be leaving this summer. Having overcome medical adversities and achieved outstanding GCSE results at a state school, he won an A Better Chance bursary place in 2017. Since then he has shone, being accepted to the National Youth Theatre and fulfilling a long-held dream by winning a place to study PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics) at Oxford University. During his two years here he has been hugely involved in the Mill Hill community and the external world through his efforts to combat knife crime and involvement in local and national pupil politics.
