Our school fees are inclusive of lunches (day pupils) and morning and afternoon refreshments all from our Award-Winning Chef and his team.  

We continue to seek to provide as much as we can within the basic school fee in order to keep your ‘extras’ to a minimum.  'Extras' are charged respectively for the term and are added onto the fee bill.

Personal accident insurance including emergency dentistry, most clubs, and all necessary textbooks are included and we subsidise some of the off-site educational visits.  All travel for games matches and otherwise when deemed representing the school as part of a team are also included in the fees. The School also has excellent learning support provision integral to the classroom (some individual assistance may be subject to additional fees).

Optional Extras

Payment of fees

Fees should ideally be paid by Direct Debit Monthly Payment Scheme or otherwise by cheque or direct bank transfer by the first day of each term. The School cannot accept cash payment for fees or extras. In addition to our Standard Terms & Conditions regarding surcharges for late payment, there is an administration charge of £20 per week. 

Leaving the school

One full term’s notice (Sep-Dec, Jan-Mar, or Apr-Jul) in writing must be given by parents or guardian before a child leaves the School (except at the end of Year 8). If notice is not given, an additional payment of a term’s fees in lieu of notice is required. Notices will only be valid for 30 days.


Pupils are automatically covered under the Pupil’s Personal Accident Scheme including dental cover for emergency treatment – the cost is incorporated in the termly fees (Maximum payment £1million – please ask at the school office if you do not have a copy of the scheme details).

In addition, the school operates through Marsh Insurance Ltd a School Fee Protection Insurance to cover the accidental death of the main fee payer for up to six months and to refund part of the school fees when a pupil is absent from school due to sickness or injury. Details of the Fee Protection scheme will be sent to parents before the pupil’s first term. The cost of the insurance is 1.58% of the termly net fees.

Possessions insurance is now also available to parents wishing to take out insurance for items being brought into school including sports kits and IT equipment. Please ask the Bursar for further information about this. The cost of this is approximately £24 per annum.
