Grange Park Preparatory School currently participates in the Government’s 15 and 30 hours Early Years’ Grant.  Your child is eligible for Early Years’ funding from the term after their third birthday until the term in which your child turns 5.  The school administers the scheme on behalf of its families.  The Early Years’ Grant entitlement for all eligible children will be automatically deducted from the fees excluding lunches. The net effect of this may vary depending on the number of weeks in the term.

Grange Park Prep School: A Guide to Bursaries

A bursary provides financial support to help pay school fees. It is based on parents’/guardians’ income and ranges in levels of support.

It is awarded to children who would benefit from an education at Grange Park Prep School and whose parents would otherwise be unable to send them to the School.

Bursaries may be available to children in Year 3-6. An application for a bursary would be considered from:

  • a child currently within the School whose family circumstance has changed unexpectedly, as a result of which financial support would be required for them to remain at school.
  • a child currently attending a state school whose family could not afford to pay for private education but who would benefit from being educated at Grange Park Prep School.

In exceptional circumstances, a bursary may be awarded to children in the Lower School (Reception – Year 2).

A bursary is initially granted for one year and then reviewed annually.

Applicants will be asked to complete a Statement of Financial Circumstances. All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.

The final decision on an award of a bursary will be made by the Board of Governors in consultation with the Headteacher.
