A lack of financial resources need not be a barrier to your child attending an independent school. 

Approximately a third of pupils at independent schools are in receipt of some fee assistance - that is over 170,000 pupils. 


Nearly a billion pounds are given every year in the form of scholarships, bursaries and other awards.


Each year, over five thousand pupils receive means-tested financial assistance of 100% of the fees.
