Assisted Places

We offer Assisted Places (Bursaries) to children joining us at 7+, 11+ and 16+. Fee remission is only applicable to Assisted Places which support children who would not otherwise be able to attend the school;  

Bancroft’s has a long tradition of educating pupils of high ability from a variety of backgrounds; we are committed to broadening access to the School by offering financial support with the payment of school fees to eligible parents/guardians through our Assisted Places.

We offer Assisted Places for entry into the Prep School at 7+ and into the Senior School at ages 11+ and16+. An Assisted Place at 7+ level will only cover a pupil’s time at the Prep School but families may reapply for an Assisted Place when transferring to the Senior School.

Assisted Places are awarded following a confidential financial assessment of household income which is reassessed every year. Candidates must also fulfil the minimum entry requirements.

To have your child considered for an Assisted Place, please do not complete the registration form. Instead you should complete the Initial  Assessment of Income Form (follow link below).  When we have ascertained whether you could qualify for an Assisted Place, we will then contact you to invite you to complete an assisted place registration form and pay a reduced registration fee of £20.

Please note that we are no longer accepting applications for Assisted Places for September 2023.  Details for September 2024 entry will be available in the Spring Term of 2023.


We would very much like to increase the number of Assisted Places we award to enable more talented children to enjoy a Bancroft’s education regardless of their families’ finances.

Further details may be found in our Assisted Places Policy.
