International Students 

The Perse is a day school and does not offer boarding facilities and so cannot accept applications from international pupils unless they will be living witha parent or legal guardian in the Cambridge area. Parents will need to ensure their child has the appropriate immigration status to live and study in the UK to attend the school.

The school does not sponsor pupils under the Child Student Visa Scheme. 


Perse pupils in Year 7 and Year 9 will receive an invitation to audition for a music scholarship at the end of the academic year.

Scholarship awards are not means-tested and are one off payments of £500.
