An independent school in Gloucestershire prepares to reduce tuition fees

Ed Exec, 30.11.15, an independent school in Gloucestershire, Rendcomb College, has announced it will reduce its Sixth Form fees for day pupils by 30 per cent. HMC member Rob Jones, Headmaster of leading independent Rendcomb College is quoted.

Rendcomb College, a co-educational day and boarding school for children aged three to 18 near Cheltenham says the significant drop in fees will increase affordability for parents of Sixth Form pupils.

Headmaster at Rendcomb College, Rob Jones, who has been in post since September, said: “By reducing the fees for the critical final two years of a pupil’s compulsory education we can offer quality teaching at an affordable price. We are not only recognising the loyalty of our current pupils and parents with this announcement but we are also widening the net for parents looking to invest in the final years of their child’s education.

“A number of our Sixth From pupils have been selected for interviews at Oxford and Cambridge this year so we are confident in our provision at this level for academic achievement and in bringing out the best in each individual."

The current day fee for Sixth Form pupils is £21,450 per year, the new fee from September 2016 will be £15,000 per year. Boarding fees will not be affected. Scholarships in Academic, Sport, Music, Drama and Art may still be applied for ahead of Sixth Form entry and bursaries are also available.
