Financial Help

Means-Tested Assisted Places - available for entry at 11+ (Y7), 13+ (Y9) & 16+ (Y12) only

Assisted Places (AP) are awarded to pupils in financial need to enable students to attend the School whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford the fees. The awards take into account both parents' income and assets and are generally reserved for pupils aged 11 upwards. Assisted Places are made available by United Learning and by The Ashford School Foundation and are subject to eligibility criteria and terms and conditions. If you are interested in applying for a Means Tested Assisted Place, please contact Mrs Rachael Cox, the Registrar: 01233 739030 or by email at registrar@ashfordschool.co.uk

 

Clergy Bursaries for children age 3-18

Clergy Bursaries are available to the children of clergy and take into account the joint income of parents. These bursaries are normally held by Anglican clergy but the school considers requests from other Christian denominations. If you are interested in applying for a Means Tested Assisted Place, please contact Mrs Rachael Cox, the Registrar: 01233 739030 or by email at registrar@ashfordschool.co.uk

 

Forces Discount for children age 10-18

A 20% discount per child from the boarding fee will be offered to children of forces personnel in receipt of the Forces Education Allowance. This discount also includes Foreign Office families.

 

Sibling Discounts for children age 3-18

A 5% discount will be given to the first sibling; a 10% discount will be given to the second and subsequent siblings who are simultaneously enrolled. Families of four or more children should make individual enquiries. 

 

Emergency Bursaries

Occasionally, parents are unable to continue paying the full fees once their child has started at the School because of unemployment or other circumstances. In these circumstances it may be possible to provide a bursary or other short term support to enable the child to complete the current stage of education. Normally, such assistance is provided to those pupils who are preparing for public examinations at GCSE and A Level. Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss their position in confidence and as early as possible.
