Independent Schools – Fee Assistance

The King Edward Foundation is committed to opening the independent schools as wide as possible to all the academically most able children regardless of parental family income. The Foundation contributes approximately £2.1m a year to provide bursaries and scholarships for the two schools.

Most of this money goes towards the Governors’ Assisted Places Scheme. This is means tested and the level of reduced fees is based on gross family income and takes into account the number of dependent children.

Parents are requested to complete income and capital forms each year and to provide documentary evidence to support their application.

To calculate the level of fees payable, please see the table below for scales currently applying. All families whose gross income falls under £78,000 may be eligible for assistance.

To calculate your relevant income, start with your gross family income and subtract £2,972 for each dependent child other than the Assisted Place Holder.
An element of your capital will be included in the calculation of Relevant Income. Please ask for further details.
An Assisted Place is awarded for seven years (two years at 16+) but is reviewed annually based on your income.

Further details are provided on the schools’ websites:

King Edward’s School www.kes.org.uk

King Edward V1 High School for Girls www.kehs.org.uk

Help and information is available by telephoning Mary-Anne Rogers at the Foundation Office on 0121 415 6001 or email on mary.rogers@ske.uk.net

Some scholarships are awarded each year to the most able that are not means tested. The schools benefit from the generosity of some businesses and trusts who contribute to the bursary scheme.

At present, we thank amongst others the Ogden Trust, IMI, Pinsents, HSBC and Old Edwardians for contributing so generously, allowing the two schools to ensure that those children most academically able can attend these top schools irrespective of parental income.
