Financial Assistance

Princess Helena College has always strived to ensure that students who would benefit from an education at the School are not excluded for financial reasons. 

Each year we offer a limited number of means-tested bursaries to enable students to attend Princess Helena College whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford the fees. Applications are invited at 11+ (year 7), 13+ (Year 9) and 16+ (Year 12) only. Financial assistance is based on means-testing the household income and assets using a formula widely used within the independent sector and may include a home visit. 

Parents are required to make a written statement to support their application and bursary applications should be submitted prior to the Entrance Exam dates.

Awards range in value according to financial need and the funds available for bursaries allocated by the Governors and in all cases of financial support, parents are expected to contribute to the fees.

For those to whom a bursary has been awarded, the balance of fees due and any other additional charges for the term (e.g. bus travel) are payable by the parents.
