?Notes on Fees and Charges
Boarding and Tuition
Fees are charged per term and are inclusive of lunch (breakfast, evening meal and supper are included in the boarding fees) and books. Fees include public examination fees for first-time entries at GCSE, AS and A2 level. Additional charges for school trips and special events will be notified to parents. Payment of the full amount is due on or before the first day of term unless otherwise agreed by the finance department. Payment can be made by person by cheque or debit/credit card. The cost of school fees can be spread throughout the year by paying monthly by direct debit. Please contact the finance department for further details.
The School offers up to 15 hours per week of free education to children aged 3 and 4 years.
Regular boarding involving 5 nights per week is regarded as Weekly Boarding. Full boarders remain at school over weekends and enjoy weekend programmes of activities. Flexi-boarding is available and useful as a taster or when parents are absent from home for short periods. These flexible nights are limited to ten nights per term and is subject to availability.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Academic, Art, Music, Performing Arts, and Sport scholarships are awarded on merit and, in certain circumstances, may be supplemented with bursaries. Bursaries are available to candidates with academic potential who could thrive in this setting but would be unable to meet the fees without financial assistance. Bursaries are means-tested and subject to the availability of funds. Further details of scholarships and bursaries can be found here.
Second children and all subsequent children receive a 5% discount on school fees.
Private Lessons and optional extras
Where a fee is quoted per term, unless otherwise stated, charges are based on 30 lessons per academic year, averaging 10 per term.
An offer of a place for your child at the school is accepted by you signing and returning a parent contract with an acceptance deposit. For UK and EU residents this deposit amounts to ￡400 which will be returned without interest and less any other sums due to the School when your child leaves the School. For residents from outside the European Union two term’s fees will be required. One term will be credited to the first term’s fees and the remainder will be retained and credited, without interest, to other sums due to the School on your child’s leaving.
If you wish to withdraw your child from the school (other than at the normal leaving date), you shall either give a term’s written notice to that effect or shall pay to the school a term’s fees in lieu of notice.
