School fees cover all tuition costs and resources, please see our charging policy for an indication of additional charges which will be incurred.

We also offer payment by monthly standing order.

The scheme works like this

There is a charge for using monthly payments, which is included in the cost below, the following monthly payment must be made by 14th of each month.

  • Key stage 3 (Years 7-9) = £893
  • Key Stage 4 (Years 10-11) = £900

Terms and Conditions for monthly payments

You can sign up at any time, but the first payment for the Autumn Term is due in the July of the preceding year. If you wish to commence monthly payment for Spring Term, the first payment is due in November, and for the Summer Term, the first payment is due in March.

You set the standing order up with your bank in person or via Internet banking. You don’t have to worry about fees any more. The same amount will be taken from your bank account each month.

If you set up a standing order later than this, payments already due must be made with the first payment.
Payments for the academic year 2019 – 20 will start by 14th July 2019, and the year finishes on 14th June 2020. Parents will then be invited to sign up for a further 12 months.

If you decide to join the scheme after 14th July, you will be required to make any payments needed to bring you up to date. For example, if you sign up on 5th September, you will be required to make the monthly payments for July and August immediately, and September by 14th September.

Should a standing order be returned unpaid, an administration charge of £30 will become payable, and you will be required to make up the payment within 7 days. Payments made after 14th of each month are subject to a £20 late payment fee.

Should more than 2 standing order payments be returned within the same year, you will forfeit your right to use the scheme and will be required to bring your account up to date immediately.

Discounts available

Fees are generally increased with effect from each Autumn Term. Parents are notified of the new rate at the end of the Spring Term, and are invited to pay any number of terms in advance by the end of Summer Term – 10th July to secure these at the pre increase rate.
