Funding and Fee Assistance

We do not offer HMRC’s extended 30-hour funding.

At Michael Hall School we have a Fee Assistance programme designed to help families access our wonderful education despite potential financial strains.  For complete information about the scheme (available for all current parents) please see the attached guide, which includes our fee assistance policy.
