Fee Assistance is given where there are financial grounds and with due regard to the benefit the pupil would gain from being at the School, the potential contribution which would be made by the pupil to the life of the School, and the number of applications received in relation to the funds available. The School does not disclose its financial assessment criteria but it is unlikely that any award would be made if parents’/guardians’ joint income is in excess of £35,000 per annum (gross).
Further information on Fee Assistance is available from the Bursar.
