|The Case for Assistance - Year 7 Entry|
The Head and the Bursar will consider a number of factors when making the judgement as to the justification for support and the extent of such support:
- The ability to improve the financial position or earning power of the family. For example, where there are two partners, both would be expected to be employed unless one is prevented from doing so through incapacity, the need to care for children under school age or other dependants, or the requirements of their partner’s work.
- Opportunities to release any capital. Significant capital savings and investments (including second properties) would be expected to be used for the payment of school fees.
- In cases of separation, the contribution made by the absent parent. Please note that both parents will usually be assessed unless there is evidence that it would not be reasonable to do so.
- Contribution to household costs by other, wider, family members, any adults unrelated to the child or by outside sources.
