What will a Ffynone House School education cost? 

As a charitable trust, Ffynone House School strives to keep our charges as low as possible to enable the widest access for local families.   All fee income is invested in the running of the school, and we have no shareholders or owners taking profits from the business.  As such, our charges are significantly less than our competitors and provide excellent value for money. 

Current school fees (January to December 2023) 

Lower Middle School – Years 7 and 8£4,600 per term
Upper Middle SchoolYear 9 £4,830 per term 
Senior School (Years 10 and 11)£4,880 per term 
Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13)£4,940 per term

Fees are payable in advance and should be paid before the first day of term.  Many of our families pay by monthly standing order at no extra cost.   Each year, during the summer term, trustees undertake a review of fees and any increase in fees takes effect from 1st January in the following year.  

Scholarships 

Secondary school scholarships are available for pupils with particular skills or talents who would benefit from our tailored curriculum.   Each year a small number of scholarships are awarded based upon academic ability /ability in performing arts, art and/or sport.  Prospective pupils are welcome to attend scholarship exams during the autumn term in their Year 6.    

Larger means-tested reductions are very occasionally awarded for exceptional students; these permit wider access to a Ffynone education in keeping with our charitable status.  Means tested school bursaries may be made available to students already registered at Ffynone in cases of hardship arising due to a change of financial circumstances.   

Sixth Form Scholarships  

Academically talented students who have attained seven Level 7s at GCSE (Grade A or above) are entitled to a 10% reduction in academic fees.  Of the pupils sitting their A levels this year, 85% of pupils qualified for this scholarship.
