Fee Support

Fee Support

Clayesmore is always happy to discuss help with fees to encourage bright, inquisitive children to the school.

We offer a variety of ways to apply for support for fees. 


Financial support in the school is offered by way of means-tested bursaries. Parents are asked to complete an application form which is assessed by the Bursary Committee. A percentage discount on fees may then be offered based on financial circumstances. The school endeavours to support all applications but cannot guarantee bursaries will be awarded in every case. 

Scholarships may be supplemented by a bursary.

Bursary forms can be requested from Mrs Carolyn Evans at


Scholarships are offered in Year 9 (and Year 12) and are awarded at the discretion of the Head.

Children entering Year 9 may apply for a Scholarship in the areas of:






Design Technology 

All Rounder

Scholarship exams are taken in November and all candidates will need to be registered with the school to apply. If you would like your child to sit a scholarship exam, please fill in the Scholarship Application Form and the Registration Form.

You can also view the latest Scholarship Booklet.

Sibling Discounts

The school offers 5% discount for the eldest sibling on roll, while 10% discount is applied for each subsequent sibling attending concurrently.

Senior Military and FCDO Discounts

Clayesmore has a long and proud association with families serving in the Armed Forces and the Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office and we support Continuity of Education Allowance in both these areas.

The school offers an additional 15% discount off full fees for those in receipt of CEA. Sibling discounts will be applied where applicable.

A means-tested bursary may also be applied for, providing this does not reduce the parent contribution to less than CEA plus 10%

If you would like to find out more about CEA and discounted fees, please contact the Bursar's PA, Mrs Carolyn Evans on .
