Forces Fees

Abbotsholme School recognises the outstanding and vital contribution that our Armed Forces make. We understand that for children or servicemen and women, having to change school frequently has an impact on their education, so we offer a 17.5% bursary up to year 9 and 22.5% bursary from Y10+ to all forces families.


Sibling discount

A sibling discount is available at Abbotsholme. For the second child, 5% is deducted from the second child's fee, and for the third child 10% is deducted from the third child's fee.

Fee charges for pupils staying for one or two terms only

Our fees are based on annual fees divided into three equal amounts for each term in the academic year for ease of payment. However the terms are all a different length with the Autumn term generally being longer than the Spring and Summer terms. Therefore pupils staying for one term only during a academic year will be charged a fee that is representative of the number of weeks within that term. Pupils staying for two terms or a year only will be charged the normal termly fees.

Abbotsholme welcomes current pupils into the boarding community at anytime of the year if parents decide that their child would benefit from boarding 1 or 2 nights a week, become a weekly or full boarder and if we have the space. If a current full boarder wishes to become a weekly or flexi boarder or day pupil and a current weekly or flexi boarder decides being a day pupil is best, the School needs a terms notice in writing or the relevant fees will be charged.
