Financial Support

The Governors are committed to maintaining the breadth of access to West Buckland School by offering to eligible parents/guardians means-tested financial support for the payment of school fees.

WBS Financial Support

Financial support, in the form of a reduction on tuition fees, is only considered after parents have completed a confidential statement of financial circumstances including supporting documentation on request. This must be accompanied by a letter giving supporting information about the family circumstances now, as well as some indication of how these circumstances may develop in the future.

Details of any financial support must remain confidential and any breach by parents may lead to withdrawal of any award offered. All support is subject to annual reassessment by 1st May each year.

Any applications received after this date cannot be considered for renewal.


We are able to offer Forces Discount to families from HM Forces who qualify for Continuity of Education Allowance (CEA).

For more details please contact the Registrar Admissions’ Manager.
