Tuition fees are reviewed annually, giving one term's notice of any change. They include most books and stationery, but not examination or trip/field course fees, which are charged separately when incurred. Most sports and activities are included in the fee, but some optional activities (including Rowing and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award) carry an additional charge.

Applications from siblings of current students are welcomed and are subject to the usual entry criteria. The full tuition fee applies to all year groups and all family members.

Fee bills will be issued separately for each term at the end of the preceding term. The School’s preferred method of payment of fees is by Direct Debit (please see details below).

Monthly Payment of Fees

The School enables parents/carers (‘parents’) who wish to, to pay fees monthly. However, this option is provided not directly by the School but via one or more external third parties acceptable to the School.

The School is willing to consider any external party who meets its criteria but the scheme currently accepted by the School is School Fee Plan (SFP), provided by Premium Credit Ltd. The scheme involves parents in entering into a formal credit agreement with SFP, who make a small charge for operating the scheme.

As an indication, at September 2018 this was a 2.99% transaction fee which resulted in an APR of 5.6%, although parents are encouraged to confirm the current level of both items using the links below, before making any firm decision.

Fees in Advance Scheme

In return for a lump sum payment at or after the acceptance of an offer of a place for a pupil, the School offers a credit to be applied against each term's fee invoice for a set number of terms. The total value of these credits will be commuted at an agreed rate to calculate the amount of the lump sum payment.
