Together, the generosity of our parents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends help sustain our extraordinary school. We are so grateful.

Operating income & expenditure


John Robinson
Director of Finance

In 2017-18, ASL established a balanced budget where income and expenditure was largely the same, with a budgeted surplus of 2 percent. An analysis of income and expenditure is shown in the pie charts that accompany this section.

Tuition and transport fees accounted for 90 percent of ASL’s income. In line with most independent schools, salaries and benefits represented the School’s greatest cost at 72 percent of operating income. The Annual Fund provided 5 percent of operating income and the draw from endowment contributed a further 2 percent.

ASL continues to grow its endowment. In 2017-18, the School received £1.3M in charitable donations, resulting in our endowment increasing to £21.4M. Our major endowments being a faculty and staff fund of £12.5M, and a financial aid fund of £7.7M.
