Fees & Financial Support

Registration Fee and Deposit

The registration fee is £250 and a deposit of £2,000 is payable by all parents on acceptance of a place.  Parents normally resident outside of the UK must pay an additional sum towards the deposit of the balance of one term’s fees, payable prior to the first day of the term of entry to the School. Both are subject to annual review by the Governors.

The registration fee is non-refundable. The deposit is credited to the pupil’s final account and is refundable if we are unable to offer the candidate a place.

Should the candidate be withdrawn, this sum will not be refunded, apart from on exceptional medical or compassionate grounds, subject to individual circumstances.

Schedule of School Fees

For the academic year 2024/2025, the fees are as follows:

Fee TypeCost (per term)
Years 9 - 13 (Lower 5 through to Upper 6) 
Boarding Fee£15,730
Day Boarding Fee**£12,900
Day Fee*£10,110
Years 7 and 8 (Lower and Upper 4) 
Boarding Fee £12,900
Day Fee*£10,110

*Day Girls will invariably live close to the School so that they can fully participate in all the activities the School has to offer.  There will be no option for the girls to stay overnight but there will be space to study and store their personal effects in one of the mixed-age boarding houses. 

**Day Boarding fee guarantees a specific allocated boarding space, which will be available every night of term if a girl wishes to stay overnight at school. For each night she stays onsite, an additional charge of £55 will be payable. If a girl regularly stays at school for four nights or more per week, it is more financially efficient for parents to choose the full boarding option.

Financial Support

Please note that bursary funds have been allocated for the 2024-25 academic year and therefore no further applications for bursarial support will be accepted at this time.

Bursarial support may be available in cases of demonstrable need. Bursaries are awarded on the receipt of a means-tested form and are subject to regular review.

Most bursaries are awarded in conjunction with Scholarships and Exhibitions and may increase the total support to as much as 100% in exceptional circumstances. 

Military and Foreign Office families are normally eligible for a 10% remission of fees. 

Families may write to the Bursar to be considered for bursarial help once girls are registered. Means-tested forms will need to be submitted to the Bursar by no later than 7 October for Sixth Form entry, 31 October for 11+ entry, or 28 November for 13+ entry in any year for bursaries to start the following September.

Please read the following documentation before submitting an application:
