Concessions

Siblings
Second and subsequent siblings are eligible for a 10% concession on the school fees only when two or more siblings are concurrently at the School.

Children of Old Gregorians (alumni)
A concession of 2.5% on School fees is available for each child.

Scholarships and Bursaries

Downside offers a number of scholarships for gifted and talented pupils hoping to join the School at the principal ages of entry of 11+, 13+ and 16+.

For families who may struggle to meet the full fee payment there is the option to apply for a means-tested bursary and you can apply for this regardless of whether your child is eligible for a scholarship.


Registration and Deposit Payments

A registration fee of £100 is payable to register a pupil for entry. The registration fee is non-refundable.

A deposit is payable prior to entry to confirm acceptance of the offer of a place. The deposit is deducted from the final term’s account on leaving Downside. For UK and EU resident pupils, a deposit of £1,000 is required, and for all other pupils whose primary residence is outside the UK and EU, a full term’s fees will be charged as the deposit.
