Scholarships, Bursaries & Fees
St Faith's offer Academic Scholarships for children entering Year 3, and these are available for both internal and external candidates. There is no formal application procedure; children who perform very well in the Year 3 entry tests (external candidates) and regular assessments in their Year 2 class (internal candidates) will be invited to sit the scholarship papers. When awarding a scholarship, we will take in to account the results of these scholarships tests and the reference from the child’s current school. Scholarships are occasionally awarded to candidates who perform extremely well in the Entrance Tests for Years 4 to 8. Academic Scholarship awards are normally between 10% and 30% of the full fees.
St Faith’s offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries to support new pupils to the School where parental means would be insufficient to meet the fees in their entirety. Bursaries, on a sliding scale, are awarded to pupils who we believe will gain most from a St Faith’s education, and who will contribute fully to the life of the school.
The fees for the academic year 2021-2022 are as follows:
Pre Prep - £13,680 per year
Year 3 and 4 - £16,800 per year
Year 5 to 8 - £17,235 per year
