Fees and Bursaries

Fees and Bursaries

The Leys is committed to broadening access to the School by offering means-tested financial support to help parents with the payment of School fees. Such support is known as a Bursary and is awarded in the form of a discount on the fees. The value of the Bursary can be from 5% to 100% depending on financial, compassionate and other pertinent circumstances.

Assistance is offered to new applicants to the school and also to existing families where there is a change in financial circumstances. The School has a limited amount of funds available for Bursaries and seeks to allocate the funds to assist as many families as possible.

Please note that parents of new pupils who wish to apply for a Bursary must do so before their son or daughter is assessed for entry to the school.

For further information about the process, please contact the Finance Bursar, Mrs Mary Cooksey on +44 (0)1223 508909 or [email protected]
