Financial Assistance

Family Reduction

For pupils who are not receiving any bursary support, we offer a sibling fee reduction of 5%. This is awarded to the elder child(ren) and recognises siblings across both King Edward VI, Preparatory and King Edward VI School, Southampton.


We offer a number of means tested Bursaries each year, which have a maximum value of 100% of the School Fees. For information on how to apply and eligibility, click here.


We also provide academic scholarships worth up to 5% of the fee, and creative arts scholarships worth up to 5% of the fee. For more information on how to apply and detailed criteria, click here.



Payments are by direct debit on the first day of term unless an alternative arrangement has been agreed. Third party companies provide monthly payment options, details of which will be forwarded with the autumn term fee account. Parents are advised to take independent financial advice should they wish to use any third party payment options.

Fees In Advance (FIA)

We are offering a Fees in Advance Scheme where the cost of your child’s education at King Edward VI School Southampton can be reduced by making an advanced lump sum payment dependent on the agreed number of terms to which the advance payment applies.

A £100.00 non-returnable fee is charged for an application except when the application to be considered is for a Bursary only place when the fee is £30.00.


If, in due course, a place is offered, a deposit of £400 will be payable when the offer is accepted. This deposit will be repaid, without interest, within three months of the pupil leaving the school less any sums due to the school on leaving.

One terms notice in writing of the intention to withdraw a pupil from the School must be given. Without such notice a terms fee in lieu of notice is due.


Fees cannot be refunded for absence and parents are advised to take advantage of the School Fees Remission Scheme, details of which are forwarded when a pupil enters the School. Parents are also invited to consider insuring the payment of School fees in the event of the death of the fee payer. Parents are advised to take independent advice should they wish to use any third party insurance options
