Chapter 3: How can I afford private school fees?

School fees are very expensive, and most parents make a lot of sacrifices in order to privately educate their children.Whether this means living in a smaller house, going on fewer holidays, or saving money on small luxuries, it is not uncommon to hear that parents cut back on living expenses to give their child the very best.However, every independent school offers a wide range of financial assistance, whether you’ve always been in need or an unforeseen event has changed your circumstances. The top private schools tend to give out the highest number of scholarships and bursaries, in line with their ethos that every child should have a great education, regardless of financial position.
