‘Lots of parents are unhappy’: Anger over schools ‘continuing to charge full fees’

His child attends the mixed all-through Bristol Grammar School, on Clifton’s University Road, which charges up to £5,014 a term for a pupil’s education.

More than 1,300 pupils normally attend, but only around 30 children of key workers have been going in since Covid-19 restrictions came in.
