Fees and Finance

Our governing body understands that for many families, the affordability of fees is a significant challenge. They are mindful of this and each academic year actively looks at areas where Prior Park Schools can increase its efficiency and effectiveness without compromising the quality of its educational offering.

  • The Full Boarding rate includes: meals; transport from the airport at the beginning and end of each term (as long as your child joins the organised transport provided); weekend boarding activities.
  • Please note that an additional visa administration fee of £750 will be payable to The Nathanson partnership if a visa is required.
  •  Every effort is made to keep ‘extras’ to a minimum but it is likely that you will be billed for extra activities such as educational trips and activities. Your permission will be sought for your child to attend an activity that will generate an ‘extras’ charge over £20. 
  • Exam charges will be billed as an extra each year in line with the charge which we receive from the examination boards.
  • Sibling Discounts are awarded to parents who have two or more children simultaneously at our schools.
  • A full term's notice is required before the removal of a pupil or a change in their status between boarding categories or from boarding to day pupil. In default of so doing, one term's fees in lieu of such notice will be charged.

Bursaries

The Governors of the Prior Park Educational Trust are committed to broadening access to its schools by offering to eligible parents or guardians means-tested financial support with payment of school fees.

To apply for a bursary you must be registered with the College and have paid the £125 registration fee. A bursary can, in some circumstances, be added to a scholarship award. Applications for a bursary must be made before the offer of a place at the school.

We reserve the right to refer some bursary applications to an external agency to provide an independent assessment of the appropriate level of support, if thought to be necessary.

All bursaries are kept under review throughout an award holder's time at the College. It is a condition of a bursary award that parents report any significant change in their financial situation.

Please contact the Registrar for further information.
