Fees & Fee Assistance (Bursaries)
Strathallan School offers Scholarships and means-tested Bursaries, as well as other 'policy remissions' offered to all parents provided certain criteria are met. For further information please see below.
The main policy remission is sibling discount, but a certain amount of remission is given to former pupils of the School and members of the Armed Forces in receipt of Continuous Education Allowance.
- Fees and Extra Curriculum Charges for 2016-17
- Policy Remissions
- Financial Assistance with Fees
- Fee Assistance Form and Guidance
Other Sources of Assistance
In addition to offering Bursary support, Strathallan School will assist parents with identifying sources of funding to enable a pupil to remain within the School community if family financial circumstances change. While not definitive, we keep a list of suitable educational Trusts which can be approached for help with School fees. Anyone considering this form of funding is invited to discuss their circumstances with the Bursar, who will be able to provide advice.
As an independent School with charitable status, Strathallan receives no Government support and is dependent on fee income to cover its operating costs.
Each year, the Board of Governors reviews the fees for the following academic year, mindful of its responsibility to ensure the continuing financial stability of the School and its desire to ensure that the School remains well maintained and conducive to high levels of academic and extra-curricular achievement and pastoral support.
Annual fee increases are kept to a minimum consistent with the School’s cost base, the recognition that we wish to attract and retain the highest quality staff and the need to provide a cash surplus to allow continued development of the School’s facilities. It remains the case that the cost inflation of areas that significantly affect independent schools is well above the standard rate of inflation so often mentioned in the press. In particular, utilities, construction and maintenance have been increasing well above the general rate of inflation and the effect of the Minimum Wage increases on Support Staff Salaries.
