We appreciate that choosing an independent school is a major financial commitment for any family. Our fees compare favourably with other independent schools and include many items other schools charge as ‘extras’. School fees include a daily three course lunch, books, stationery, chromebook (senior section), exam fees, learning support, curriculum-based trips and visits and student accident insurance.  It’s our way of helping to keep costs to a minimum.

The fees for the academic year starting September 2024 are:
Annually Termly Monthly Direct Debit

(from September 2024)

Years 3 & 4


£4,218.00 £1,054.50

Fees in advance

Each year we offer a fees in advance scheme. For the academic year 2024-25 this will give parents the option of paying upfront for anything from one year up to a maximum of five years in exchange for a discount on the standard fee rate payable. All payments under the fees in advance scheme will be required before the start of the term to which it relates.
