At 7+ we offer up to two Francis Bancroft Means Tested Awards (bursaries) to children whose families’ financial situation would otherwise prevent them coming to Bancroft’s Children need to fulfil our usually admissions criteria. These awards only support the children during their time in the Prep School.
At Bancroft’s we work hard to keep extras to a minimum so that budgeting is as straightforward as possible for parents.
Fees include School lunches, all curriculum related books, materials and some curriculum related external trips.
Fees do not include Uniform, sports kit, tuition in instrumental music or speech lessons, subscriptions or payments for activities outside the curriculum, such as the CCF, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Cubs, Sea Scouts and the Old Bancroftians’ Association.
Extras are only added to the fee bill with parents’ permission, and are charged a term in arrears. Trips and Expeditions which are not part of the curriculum are charged at cost and payable in full, usually in instalments, before the trip takes place.
