Aysgarth School

A fabulously traditional, outdoorsy prep school that is co-ed up to Year 3 and boys only from Year 4. With the motto ‘Of Oak, Not Willow’, it’s no surprise to find that Aysgarth School turns out robust, confident and courageous children, happy to just get stuck in and make the most of everything they have around them.

    Aysgarth offers up to 100 per cent fee remission to families who qualify for means-tested support as part of its bursary scheme. The level of support is based on the Aysgarth Scale of Awards, which sets out award levels in relation to a family’s financial situation. It is reviewed and revised annually by the finance and general-purposes committee to reflect changes in fee costs and is approved by the governors.

    The school also has a scholarship programme, and it is more common for pupils to enter the school on a means-tested bursary using a scholarship attempt as supporting evidence to the application.
