A fee of £150 is payable by all parents wishing to register their son for entry to the School. The fee is non-refundable whether or not the boy is offered a place.
A deposit of £1,000 is payable by all parents on acceptance of a place. Parents normally resident outside of the UK must pay an additional sum towards the deposit of the balance of one term’s fees, payable prior to the first day of the term of entry to the School.
Fees in lieu of notice
You are reminded that under the School’s terms and conditions you must give a term’s written notice to terminate the parent contract, given not later than the first day of the term which is to be the boy’s final full term at the School. If proper notice is not given then fees in lieu of notice will be payable in lieu as a debt
Policy on means-tested bursaries
In line with the School's Charter and the objectives of the Charity, The Governors of Sherborne School are committed to offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees. Such support is known as a bursary and these may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% of fees, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. A pupil who is awarded an academic, music, sport, art or D&T scholarship will be eligible for further bursary support, subject to the criteria below.
Bursary Awards are made on the basis of an assessment of a family's financial circumstances, including their savings, investments and realisable assets, as well as their income, the size of their family, any other persons dependent upon them and other similar factors. Awards are subject to repeat testing of parental means each year and may be varied upwards or downwards, depending on parental circumstances.
Requests for financial support usually fall into two categories:
- New applicants to the school, where a place has been offered but parents/guardians are unable to fund the tuition fees. Read Bursary Policy
- Existing pupils where a change in parents/guardians' circumstances has resulted in difficulty in meeting tuition fees and may result in the child being withdrawn part way through a stage of education. Read Bursary Policy
