Our Assisted Places offer a maximum reduction of 85% in school fees (lunches, examination fees and other extras are charged separately). For particularly deserving pupils, additional financial support may be allocated by The Lytham Schools Foundation, in accordance with their charitable remit.
All Assisted Places are means-tested and are re-assessed annually before the start of each school year, to allow for any changes in personal financial circumstances. They are awarded primarily to new Year 7 pupils as well as new Sixth Form students, but are not available for Junior School or Nursery pupils.
Parents may apply for an Assisted Place by requesting and completing an Assisted Place Application Form during the Autumn Term, prior to the year of entry, which requires full financial details to be disclosed in confidence. Further information and Assisted Place Application Forms are available from our Admissions Office.
Bursaries may be awarded to any parents who suffer temporary and unforeseen financial hardship, thus preventing full payment of school fees. Bursaries are means-tested annually for as long as they last. They are not normally available for Junior School pupils, Nursery pupils, or pupils who are about to join the school for the first time. In awarding Bursaries, priority is given to those pupils who have been at the school for at least 5 years and to pupils in their GCSE and A level years.
Additional funding for Bursaries may also be allocated by The Lytham Schools Foundation. This funding may include a contribution towards school fees, uniform, books and equipment, and transport, each of which would be considered on respective merit.
Parents should make an appointment with the Bursar in the first instance, who will advise further on consideration of each individual situation.
Clergy Bursaries are available to the children of serving clergy in the Church of England or other Christian denominations, or to those holding related posts, such as forces chaplains. They offer a maximum reduction of 2/3 in school fees for one pupil, or 75% in school fees, if there are two or more siblings in the school. Pupils of all ages are eligible, providing that they have satisfied the school's normal entry requirements.
Clergy Bursaries are means-tested and are reviewed annually. Parents may apply for a Clergy Bursary by requesting and completing a Clergy Bursary Application Form, which requires full financial details to be disclosed in confidence. Further information is available from our Admissions Office.
Sibling discounts apply automatically for children throughout the school, from Nursery to Sixth Form, although the discounts are only applicable while an elder child remains on the school roll. The discount equates to 10% reduction in school fees for each sibling, not including the elder child. Parents currently in receipt of sibling discounts from Arnold or KEQMS will continue to receive this remission at its existing level, for as long as they are eligible to do so.
