The Governors of Chafyn Grove School are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible families means-tested financial support. Such a discount is known as a Bursary. To apply for a bursary, please mention that you would like information as part of your application. The bursary procedure is separate to the standard admissions procedure and in no way changes that process. All awards are subject to annual review and significant bursaries will involve an assessment from an external company, BAL Ltd. For further details on any aspect of this process, please contact our Bursar, Mrs Davies (01722 420894/

CGS Bursary Policy


While Chafyn Grove is justifiably proud of the scholarship success its pupils enjoy to Senior schools, we do not offer scholarships ourselves. The principal reason for this is to devote funds instead to means-tested bursaries, rather than talent-tested scholarships where financial support may not be needed. We have a record of developing such talents which is exemplary, and are confident that this is the correct recompense for such a situation.


Since April 2005 employers have been able to provide Child Care Vouchers (CCVs) up to a value of £55 per week or £243 per month, free from tax and national insurance contributions as part of a salary sacrifice scheme for employees.

The current rates are shown on the HMRC website at (look at Guidance for Employees).

Chafyn Grove School is happy to accept CCVs from parents but, as ever, there are rules that must be followed. In essence, Chafyn children can benefit from this provision for an activity if it takes place outside normal school hours and on school premises, for example Boarding, Late-stay or holiday clubs. It is impossible to offer definitive advice without it becoming lengthy and complicated; our bursary department, rather than our website, provides the necessary detail most happily.

 Ordinary tuition fees can come into the scope of this scheme for children at Chafyn Grove from Nursery to Reception – birth-dates are a key factor. This currently mirrors the (separate) eligibility rules for provision of the Nursery Education Grant.

Chafyn Grove is registered with the following CCV providers (CCV Provider / Carer Number):

Edenred (was Accor Services) P20039348
