Means Tested Awards at 7+

There are up to two Means Tested Awards (also known as bursaries) available for applicants for 7+ entry  and  are given to bright children whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford the fees for Bancroft's Prep and are awarded on the results of the 7+ entrance tests.

Parents are required to submit a comprehensive and confidential statement of income and assets. This is reassessed on a yearly basis. The value of an Award depends on a number of factors, including total income and the number of dependants.   An Award at 7+ level will only cover a pupil’s time at the Prep School.  For details of Prep School awards, please contact us on:

11+ Open Morning & resumption of Minibus service

On Saturday 16 November, we are holding our final 11+ Open Morning for entry to Bancroft’s in September 2020.  Refreshments will be served from 9.30am onwards before introductory talks at 10am.  Pupil led tours will follow and there will be plenty of chances to talk to staff.  We look forward to meeting you on Saturday.

We are pleased to advise you that the roadworks directly outside the school have now concluded and the resulting traffic congestion has therefore eased. As a result we will be restoring the Loughton Minibus Service to it’s normal time with immediate effect, from Wednesday 13th November onwards it will be in the Sainsbury’s Car Park at Loughton Station from 7.45am and will depart promptly at 8am.
