Help with fees

If you would like to join The Perse but cannot afford our fees, then you can apply for a bursary. Our bursary awards range from 5-100% of annual fees. 

We also offer additional support with the cost of school lunches and middle school (Years 9-11) device charges (Microsoft Surface Pro 8).

Pupils awarded higher levels of bursary support could also receive funding to help with other school related costs.

We offer several bursaries for new pupils applying for entry into Year 7 and above. To apply for a bursary, you must tick the box on the registration form indicating you wish to apply for means-tested assistance with school fees. 

Currently, we are providing more than £1million of bursary support to pupils.  

All bursary awards are fully means-tested in accordance with the criteria published in the school’s Bursary Policy. Awards are also subject to annual review. The school uses Bursary Administration Limited to review and assess bursary applications, which includes a home visit. 

The school, at its absolute discretion, may consider late bursary applications up to the date of the entrance test.  

Bursary assessments are conducted independently of the academic selection process. No action taken regarding your bursary application should be considered as indicative as to whether an offer of a place at the school will be made.

Hardship Bursaries 

The Perse has limited bursary funds to provide short-term assistance to parents of Upper School pupils who have experienced an unforeseen change in their financial circumstances. Such awards are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. For more information about hardship bursary awards, please refer to the school’s Bursary Policy.
