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 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 Bursar in writing or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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. Please note that a reduced notice period of one month is applicable for pupils in receipt of EYFE hours.
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 in writing to the Headteacher for their child’s withdrawal from the School. If notice is provided on or after the first day of term then the following term’s fees are to be paid in full before the start of the new term.
For children in nursery and reception accessing EYFE only or EYFE which cannot be separated from non-funded hours a notice period of one full month will be required.
