How much does a private education cost?

The school’s policy is to ensure that fees are maintained at levels which are as reasonable as possible consistent with delivering high standards. In doing so, we hope to widen access to as many families as possible who are considering the benefits of independent education.

As an independent school we charge fees to cover the cost of education provided.  

Unlike some other schools, these fees are fully inclusive of stationery and materials such as text and exercise books used within school, as well as games transport, travel insurance for school trips and examination fees. Lunches are compulsory and are included in the fees so that all pupils receive a healthy meal from a selection of dishes every day to ensure the appropriate level of nutritional provision for the School day.
