Assisted Places

Somerhill is committed towards improving access to the School by offering means-tested financial assistance to support eligible parents with the payment of school fees. The School uses an independent company, Bursary Administration Limited (BAL) to review and assess all assisted place applications. This process involves the completion of a confidential application form, a home visit and provision of supporting documentary evidence to establish the financial circumstances of applicants. BAL will then make a recommendation to the Bursar for consideration. All assisted place awards will be reviewed on an annual basis and may be adjusted to reflect changes in parents’ circumstances. Please note that assisted places are only available for Yardley Court (Y3-Y8) and Derwent Lodge (Y3-Y6) not the Pre-Prep.

Please contact our Bursar, Julian Hunt, on 01732 375954 for more information on the assisted places process at Somerhill.

Yardley Court at Somerhill supports the Tonbridge Junior Foundation Scholar for Years 7 and 8. For more information on this, please contact Tonbridge School directly.
