Early Education Funding (EEF)
All 3 and 4 year olds in England are entitled to 570 hours of free early education or childcare a year. This is often taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year.
The government has committed to doubling the amount of free childcare from 15 to 30 hours a week for working parents of Early Years pupils from September 2017. It may be the case that some households are eligible for 30 hours instead of the universal 15 hours.
The 30 hours of extended entitlement applies to pupils of Hampton Court House from Daycare (children age 3) through to Reception (the school term of the child’s 5th birthday).
Parents are able to check their eligibility online and the government has provided an eligibility checker via this weblink: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
Academic and Music scholarships are awarded on a case by case basis and are considered after a child has reached the age of 11. The School offers scholarships to the value of 10% per annum of the annual fees for entry in Years 7 and 9.
Expectations of Scholars
Those pupils in receipt of scholarships are expected to take a leading part in the academic, musical or artistic life of the School, as considered appropriate by the Headmaster, for the duration of the scholarship.
