The School fee for 2020-21 is £18,233. Fees may be paid by monthly Direct Debit. There are some costs which are not covered by fees. These include lunches, uniform, sports’ and PE kit, external examination entry fees and individual music and LAMDA tuition. Whilst the majority of curricular trips and Field Days are covered by fees, some non-academic trips will need to be paid for. We do all that we can though, to make as many of our trips as possible accessible to all of our students.
The scholarship will remain throughout your child’s school career, provided he or she maintains the expected standards.
Whilst a separate application form is not required to be considered for Academic Scholarships, you are required to submit an application form for other scholarships and will be subject to a separate assessment.
Those applying for a bursary may also apply for a scholarship.
For entry at 10+, 11+ and 13+, all students are considered for an Academic Scholarship. Additionally, students may apply for Scholarships in: Music, Sport, Drama, Art and Design Technology.
For entry to our Sixth Form, all students who sit the entrance exams are assessed for an Academic Scholarship. In addition to the Academic Scholarship, students may apply for an Art, Music, Drama or Sport Scholarship.
The Whitgift Foundation provides the vast majority of our bursary support, amounting to over 10% of our total fee income each year. However, we have more pupils applying than this fund can support, so Trinity has its own dedicated, additional bursary fund which increases the number of awards we can make each year. All bursary applications and awards are processed through the Whitgift Foundation.
Bursaries are awarded on an assessment of the financial circumstances of parents. Please follow the link above, to the John Whitgift Foundation’s website, for further details. Bursary assessment forms should be completed before the entrance examination is taken. On the basis of the admissions process, we offer places, and we then can offer bursaries to some, but not all, of our bursary applicants.
We don’t have funds to support all applicants, and awards are made to as many as we can fund each year. A pupil who pays reduced fees because of a bursary may also be awarded a scholarship.
For 10+, 11+ and 13+, bursary applicants may be awarded a scholarship. Where the scholarship and bursary combined make up more than the total fees, the bursary is applied first. The scholarship will be applied up to its full percentage if the bursary level were to be reduced as a result of future family income assessments.
The Clerk to the Whitgift Foundation calculates the bursary award.
