This is a non-refundable fee to register your child with the School and cover administration.

This charge is non-refundable in the event of the child not starting the School.

Bursaries

In accordance with Windlesham School’s ethos that all children should have access to affordable, private education, the School Governors have established a Bursary Fund. Families of children entering Year 1 or above have the opportunity to apply for bursaries valued at up to 50% of the basic cost of school fees. The number of bursaries available is limited; therefore not all applications are successful.
The process involves completion of a detailed statement of financial circumstances and provision of financial details such as proof of income and bank statements. All applications and information provided are treated with the strictest confidentiality. This information is considered by the Bursaries Committee and awards are made as appropriate. The decision of the Bursaries Committee is final. Any resulting awards are subject to annual review and are offered on the absolute understanding that fees due are paid on time.

Requests for statement of financial circumstances forms should be made to the Head of Finance & Operations in writing or via email to accounts@windleshamschool.co.uk.

Early Years Free Entitlement

All 3 and 4 year old children resident in Brighton and Hove are currently entitled to Early Years Free Entitlement of 15 hours per week. Windlesham School currently offers the 15 free hours to pupils as indicated on each termly invoice. The free 15 hours is provided during the School day with actual timings varying according to the days/hours your child attends. Further information is available from the Head of Finance & Operations.

Friends of Windlesham Parents’ Association

A voluntary donation of £5.00 per child per term is charged on each invoice to support the many activities organised by the Friends of Windlesham throughout the year.

Parents are reminded that a full Term’s notice is required for their child’s withdrawal from the School.
