The school has its roots in benefaction and we remain committed to our founder’s vision – to realise the talent of future generations by providing an excellent education to children of all backgrounds. Thanks to our Bursary Fund of around £1million per annum, more than 80 children whose families would not otherwise be able to afford a Perse education receive means-tested financial assistance to study here. We are proud to be supporting these students, but we aim to do more. Our vision is to double that number through our fundraising campaign.
Our means-tested bursaries for families of limited means are available for children from Year 7 onwards. Financial support ranges from 5% to 100% of the annual tuition fees.

From September 2020, all Year 9 and Year 10 students will be issued with a Microsoft Surface Pro device.

Subject to final confirmation, there will be a termly usage charge (added to term bills) of £131 including VAT, initial peripheral purchase (type case keyboard, digital pen, fitted protection case) and insurance of the main device. For more details about this scheme, please click here.
