Financial Support

School Trips and Activities 

The school organises a very wide range of activities that extends well beyond statutory provision. While feedback from parents has been very supportive, we recognise that some families may have difficulty in meeting the associated costs. 

Parents may speak in confidence to the Bursar or Depute Bursar about eligibility for support if financial constraints impede your child's participation in any aspect of school life.
