Fees and Financial Support
Fees vary from school to school, from region to region and by school type, with boarding schools' fees being higher than those of day schools.
HMC independent schools promote social diversity and the growth of financial support for parents across our schools provides opportunities to benefit for pupils from all backgrounds. Over a third of pupils in HMC independent schools across the UK received help with their fees in 2016/17 and half of this was in the form of means-tested bursaries. Financial support is offered in a variety of forms:
- Academic Scholarships
- Specialist Scholarships for Sports, Music, Arts, Drama and ICT
- Means-Tested Bursaries
- Armed Forces Discounts
- Government Grants
To find out more about the different forms of financial support on offer, please contact the schools directly.
Even in deep recession, parents recognise excellence in education. Despite increasing financial pressure, families are determined to find the best and broadest opportunities for their children in the independent sector. The social and ethnic diversity of students in HMC schools gets broader every year, thanks in particular to increased fee assistance.
