Fees & Funding
We are always pleased to have the opportunity to share our vision for Christian education with new families and would encourage you to come and explore this with us. For some families the cost of joining the journey of Christian education at CFS will be a big step, but support may be available through our bursary scheme.
We recognise that pupils benefit most from their life at CFS the earlier they start a Christ-centred educational career. To encourage this, if pupils move from lower school to middle school the annual supplement of £800 is waived as per the fee structure. In addition, for new families we ease the transition by reducing fees for the first lower school child by 50% for the first year when they join the school.
In a spirit of partnership with parents, our committed team of teachers receive significantly lower than average teaching salaries in order to keep fees less than most other similar independent schools.
There is an understanding that the community works together collaboratively, such that parents and church communities resource the school in other ways, such as donations, volunteering, sourcing equipment and pupil sponsorship.
A one-time fee of £30.00 per family is payable on entry to the school, to cover administration costs.
