Fees and Bursaries


Our fees range from £2,875 – £5,285  per pupil per term and include all snacks and lunches as well as a multitude of extra-curricular activities. For a full breakdown of fees please download the fees document for this year.


There are a limited number of means-tested bursaries available each year which are reviewed annually in the Spring Term. These are designed to assist parents who would not be able to fund their child’s education at Ballard through any other means. In addition to reviewing all relevant sources of income, the School also takes account of capital assets. Home visits are made by our Bursary company and their recommendations are made to the Bursary committee.

Bursaries are only available for pupils from Year 3 to Year 11 and the closing deadline is November 30 of the previous year (so applications are now closed for September 2020 entry). A third-party company will then visit you at home to make an impartial assessment. All their recommendations are collated and we would hope to let you know of our decision by the end of the Spring term.

To be considered for a Bursary or for more information, please contact our Bursar’s office: bursar@ballardschool.co.uk.
