Impact Statement

No formal partnerships between our school and state schools however we make our facilities available to all local state schools. Local schools borrow our school mini buses, they have use of the swimming pool and astro turf.

Sunninghill Prep School is committed to broadening access by offering eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support with school fees. The school offers a number of bursaries which are means-tested. These are available for new entrants to the school coming in at different entrance points across the school. These awards vary from 10% to 100% of the tuition fees. Last year, Sunninghill Prep School offered mean-tested bursaries to approximately 15 children.

Sunninghill Prep School has limited bursarial funds to provide short-term assistance to current parents where there has been an unforeseen change in financial circumstances. Such awards are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed. For information on this for existing pupils please contact the school directly.

To apply for a means-tested bursary for new entrants you will need to complete and return our application form by 31 January each year, for entry in the following September. The form is available from the Bursar. We will then contact you and ask to meet your family and your child, who will also need to attend the school for a taster day. Parents will be notified as to whether they have been allocated a bursary in writing.

All bursary applications are subject to annual means-testing and may be varied upwards or downwards depending on parental circumstances and financial information provided on review.
