Fee Assistance Methodology

Wynstones Fee Assistance App Form 2016-2017

Our scholarship scheme addresses the situations of families currently unable to access Wynstones education even without fee assistance. Applicants should complete the form linked above and send it to Rose Palmer, Finance Manager, with a covering letter. A means-tested assessment will be made based on what families can afford, as with the fee assistance scheme. It differs in that more assistance can be offered depending on circumstances, with a minimum contribution of £2,650 per pupil per year. However, it should be noted that this level of funding is available to a limited number of pupils and is dependent on both existing Class sizes and available funds.
