Fees

You can download this information as a handy leaflet guide here.

The details of our fee structure is given below.

There are several factors to be aware of when comparisons are made between different schools, both locally and nationally.

  • Our fees include free, supervised wrap around care for all Prep and Senior School pupils from 7.45am to 5.00pm daily.
  • Our nursery fees are the most competitively priced locally for the excellent standard of care and the exceptional School-wide facilities that are utilised.
  • Our Prep and Senior School fees also reflect our smaller class sizes, particularly in our STEM subjects, throughout the School.
  • Our School is 3-18 School, and by running a Sixth Form, we attract a different calibre of specialist subject teachers, whose experience and knowledge trickles down to our very youngest pupils.
  • Our fees are inclusive of stationery, textbooks and all writing materials.
