Bursary Information

Charlotte House School is a registered charity. The school relies on the fees from parents to meet the whole of its operating costs as it does not have the benefit of an endowment fund or any other form of income.

The School offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries awarded according to need, up to a maximum of 75% for girls entering the school at age 7+. It is not likely that a bursary would be awarded to a family where relevant annual income exceeds £45,000. In the case of a divorce or separation, both parents will be required to complete financial statements. Bursaries are financed by the school.

Parents who are interested in applying for bursaries need to request a Bursary Application Form.

Once a bursary award has been made, it will be subject to an annual review.

Head’s Talk & Tours

Throughout July and August, our Head, Miss Woodcock, is inviting future Charlotte House families to safely meet with her on our School site for a socially-distanced tour of our incredible school and an informal talk about your daughter and her education.  Please contact office@chpschool.co.uk to make an appointment.
