The Foundation wishes to extend the benefit of the school's Catholic ethos, academic and social excellence to families who may not be able to pay full fees through the provision of financial assistance by way of bursaries. 

Bursaries are available for pupils wishing to join Crescent School and would normally only be awarded to children from Year 3 upwards. Whilst the main financial criteria are household income and net assets, each application is considered on its own merits. 

Applications are made via an online system, please contact feessupport@princethorpe.co.uk to be sent a link to the system.

Applications for bursaries are means-tested and reviewed by external consultants.


Fees in Advance Scheme

The Foundation has had a Fees in Advance (FIA) Scheme for some years. This is reviewed periodically by Trustees of the Foundation. A recent review has been completed and Trustees have agreed to an updated FIA Scheme for pupils across our Foundation schools.

Parents, guardians or third-party fee payers can use the Scheme to pay for all or part of the tuition fees for their child’s education at one of our schools in return for the benefit of a discount on fees, currently set at 2% per annum.
