What is the Free Private Schools Fees Scheme?

There is a free private schools fees scheme that promotes access to London’s independent school sector amongst those who cannot afford to pay termly fees.

Choose the school that will suit your child the best, not the one that he or she is “expected” to attend or one that can give the parent a glow of reflected glory. A child who is not academically very able or driven, may well become disillusioned if squeezed into a highly selective academic school. Parents should look at a number of schools and keep their options open, rather than setting all hopes and expectations on one school.

Parents and students should attend Open Days, see the school in action and meet the head, who sets the ethos and values of the school. The school should feel right for the family; after all it is a long term life affecting decision.

Fee Assistance at these London Independent Schools

Each of these London independent schools of London is recognised for its high academic standards and the breadth of its education. Different terms are used to describe the fee assistance programmes. For example:

  • Bursaries
  • Scholarships
  • Assisted places
  • Sponsored awards

Regardless of the name, the aim is to offer fee assistance to those children most likely to benefit from private school education.

Our Top Ten Study Skills Tips

Welcome to our 10 Top Tips to help you improve your own Study Skills.

  1. Find time to study – Firstly, if you manage your time badly, inevitably you will be less productive than if you manage it well. This can lead to increased stress and anxiety levels, especially around exam time.
  2. Keep to a routine– Secondly, try to work in the same place at the same time each day. Also, make sure you have everything you need before you start.
  3. Work to your strengths– And also try to schedule challenging tasks for when you are most alert. Routine ones for when you may be feeling more tired.
  4. Don’t waste time –  Avoid reading irrelevant material. Instead, skim and scan to help you decide if you need to read it in depth. Or not at all!
  5. Avoid distractions– Also, you must switch emails and social media off. This will prevent your mind wandering.
  6. Regularly review your notes– Plus you should try to cut out what you don’t need. Ask yourself the question: “Is this information is relevant to my assignment, and how does it relate to what I already know.”
  7. Vary how you to take notes – We suggest that you use Mind Maps and diagrams. These help to generate ideas and linear notes to focus your ideas for essay or report plans.
  8. Be critical– And also maintain a critical and analytical approach at all times!
  9. Plan your work– If writing an assignment produce a detailed plan before you start to write it. This will make the drafting process much less stressful.
  10. Understand different styles – So, by understanding different writing styles can put what you read into perspective. Ane even more importantly to avoid any bias.
