The Clapham School policy on tuition differs from most other schools in a number of respects.
Naturally then, we place significant focus on raising funds to help award scholarships for those families that need some financial help in affording a Clapham education for their children. Clapham School has stated a goal to never turn away a student because of financial need. We strongly encourage interested families to apply for financial aid in the form of Need Based Grants. For the families who are the right fit for our unique model, our financial aid process is the way we ensure that a Clapham education is affordable.
