Prospect House School Educational Trust

We believe an outstanding educational experience, which encompasses not only the academic curriculum, but also includes wellbeing, developing confidence, self-esteem and happiness, should be available to all children.

The Prospect House School Educational Trust (PHSET) was therefore set up to offer free bursaries to children (from age 7 and 8) whose families would otherwise be unable to afford private schooling. PHSET is a registered charity which works closely with, but independently of, Prospect House School in Putney.

We want children to thrive at the school and are therefore looking for those students who can demonstrate high academic potential and, most importantly, an eagerness to learn.

The successful candidates will also gain financial support for residential trips, learning a musical instrument and other extra-curricular activities if desired.

We are accepting applications for the current academic year on a first come, first served basis.

To assess who is eligible for a bursary we consider a range of objective criteria including the annual household income and assets of the families applying.

It is anticipated that bursary awards will last for the duration of the child’s time at Prospect House School. We re-assess existing bursaries every year to take account of significant changes in family income and circumstances. A bursary may go up or down to reflect these changes. This ensures those most in need receive our support.

Depending on the outcome of the financial assessment, a bursary can be awarded up to 100%.

Most higher-value bursaries are awarded to pupils from families with a total income of less than £45,000 and who have no capital assets other than their home.

It is unlikely that a bursary would be awarded to a family whose annual income is greater than £90,000, other than in very exceptional circumstances.
