School Fees

LEVEL

The fee for 2014/2015 is £13,815 per annum all-inclusive with a 5% reduction for brothers and sisters who are not receiving any bursary awards. For the convenience of parents, this Annual Fee is divided into three termly payments of £4,605. Optional extras include: dinners – insurance – instrumental tuition – specialist sports – visits and tours. The Governors try to maintain the fee for the year but reserve the right to alter it, if necessary (giving parents a term’s notice).

 

PAYMENT

Payments are by direct debit on the first day of term unless an alternative arrangement has been agreed.  Third party companies provide monthly payment options, details of which will be forwarded with the Autumn Term Fee Account. Parents are advised to take independent financial advice should they wish to use any third party payment options.

 

DEPOSIT

If, in due course, a place is offered, a deposit of £200 will be payable when the offer is accepted. This deposit will be repaid, without interest, within three months of the pupil leaving the school less any sums due to the School on leaving.

 

LUNCHES

For 2014/2015, the cost of lunch is £3.75 per day.

 

APPLICATIONS

A £50.00 non-returnable fee is charged for an application except when the application to be considered is for a Bursary place only when the fee is £25.00.

 

WITHDRAWAL

One term’s notice in writing of the intention to withdraw a pupil from the School must be given. Without such notice a term’s fee in lieu of notice is due.

 

INSURANCE

Fees cannot be refunded for absence and parents are advised to take advantage of the School Fees Remission Scheme, details of which are forwarded when a pupil enters the School. Personal and dental accident schemes are also in operation and are funded through the fee. Parents are also invited to consider insuring the payment of School fees in the event of the death of the fee payer. Parents are advised to take independent advice should they wish to use any third party insurance options.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

Academic scholarships worth up to 10% of the Full Fee and Creative Arts scholarships worth up to 5% of the Full Fee are available on admission to the Lower School. Other scholarships and awards are available to current students on entry to the Upper School and the Sixth Form based on achievement, potential and progress. Entry awards are also available for external candidates to the Sixth Form. Full details can be obtained from the Registrar.

 

BURSARIES

The School will offer a number of Foundation Bursaries each year to pupils entering the First and Third Years and the Sixth Form, with a maximum value of 100% of the School Full Fee. The actual sum offered will depend upon a means test which will be reviewed annually.
