The Charitable Trust which runs the College has a policy of keeping the parents’ commitment as low as possible.

Termly Fees

The day to day running costs of the College are covered by the Termly Fees payable on or before the first day of each term in advance for each child. As from 1st September 2023 these will be as follows:

  • Infant School (Foundation – Infant 2) – £3,473 per term
  • Junior School (Year 3 – Year 6)  – £3,525 per term
  • Senior School (Year 7 – 6th Form) – £5,054 per term

The termly fees are subject to review annually by the Board of Governors. A full term’s notice of any changes to termly fee levels will be given.

Compulsory Additional Costs

The following costs are additional to the termly fees:

  • Senior School and Sixth Form lunches £320 per term (as of January 1st 2024)
  • Infant & Junior School lunches £295 per term (as of January 1st 2024)
  • Fees for external examinations for which pupils are entered are payable before the start of the term in which the examinations take place
  • Some books required by A Level and GCSE pupils are chargeable
  • Parents should also take into consideration the cost of providing the College uniform

Sibling Discounts

Sibling discounts apply automatically for pupils throughout the College, from Reception to Sixth Form. Our sibling discount scale for all new families will be applied from 1 September 2023 and will be as follows: sibling 1 @ 5%; sibling 2 @ 10%; sibling 3 @ 15%; sibling 4 @ 20% – capped at 20% for any additional siblings.

The sibling discounts are only applicable while an elder child remains on the College roll.

For our current families, any existing arrangements will stay as they are, except where there will be a benefit from the new scale.

Optional Supplemental Charges

There are a number of non-compulsory insurance schemes available to parents:

Please note that a full term’s notice is required for withdrawal from any of these schemes.

In addition to the schemes listed above, the College participates in a Personal Accident Scheme for pupils that is already included in the termly Fees.
