Music tuition fees

Hire of instrument: £ 35 per term

Pupils’ personal accident insurance scheme (optional)

The premium is £5 per term.

Pupil Sickness Absence Insurance Scheme (Optional)

Under the school’s terms and conditions, there is no waiver of fees for pupil absence. However the school offers an insurance scheme that makes available fee refunds if pupils are absent from school for five or more days due to illness or accident. The premium for the insurance is 0.63% of the net termly tuition fee. Further details and a participation reply slip may be downloaded here.

Payment of fees

School Fees are charged in advance and, if paid termly, are due on or before the first day of term. Alternatively, fees may, by arrangement, be paid either in monthly instalments by direct debit or by depositing lump sums in advance. Details of these schemes may be obtained from the Deputy Bursar.
In cases of late payment, the Governors reserve the right to make a surcharge, composed of simple interest calculated at a rate of one percent of the outstanding balance per month.

School lunch fees

All pupils are assumed to be having school lunches and will be billed accordingly, termly in advance unless the school receives written notice to the contrary before the start of term. Our healthy menus offer a wide choice of options catering for a range of tastes and special diets. In the senior school pupils can purchase hot snacks, pastries, and drinks at our mid-morning break service in the Dining Hall. Breakfast is also available before school. Children in Kindergarten and up to and including Year 2 are provided with a morning and afternoon snacks at no additional cost.

Sibling discount

A reduction in fees (ten percent for a third child and fifteen percent for a fourth child) will be given in cases when three or more siblings are pupils at the school together. These reductions only apply to full-time Kindergarten children.

Financial assistance (bursaries)

We offer a number of bursaries annually including full bursaries at the senior school and very occasionally at the junior schools. Bursaries are means-tested. Bursaries can also be offered to pupils who might otherwise leave the school because of financial hardship. Further details are available on the website or from the Registrar.
