School Fees 2019/20

Main School Fees

Apart from Early Years funding the school receives no funds from the Department for Education or the Local Education Authority. Fundraising by friends of the school is an ongoing necessity to keep the level of fees at a reasonable level.

A Registration Fee of £100 and a Deposit of £1,000, per child, is payable on acceptance of a place. The Registration Fee, once paid, reserves a confirmed place and is non-returnable in the event of a cancellation. The Deposit is non-returnable in the event of cancellation but will be retained until the child leaves the school when it will be applied against the final term’s fees.

A full term’s notice or payment in lieu is required for withdrawal from the school.

  • £2,791 per term
  • Reception year – there is a reduction in fees with Early Years Funding depending on when child turns five
  • Fees are payable by direct debit, in 10 installments of £837.30, or in full by the first day of term.
  • There is a 15% sibling discount on fees for second and subsequent children.

For all enquiries related to school fees please contact the school office.


Nursery Fees 2019/20

On acceptance of a place in nursery we require a £100 Registration Fee. This will reserve a confirmed place for your child in the nursery and is non-returnable. One month’s notice is required for withdrawal from the nursery or changes in attendance.
