The likely size of any fee increase for the coming year is communicated to parents each Easter. The precise fees are set and communicated to parents in July.
Our priority for pupils who are full or weekly boarding is to ensure they feel at home here. We facilitate this by offering every pupil who boards a reserved bed each night during term time. We also offer occasional boarding, where pupils have the option to stay over whenever there is an activity they want to join in with or whenever it suits them and their parents. It’s about offering our pupils every flexibility to enjoy the school facilities and activities once the school day is finished. While priority is naturally given to full boarders, we will do our best to accommodate any last-minute request to stay over from occasional/flexi boarders.

No extra charge is made for using standard College facilities, games, medical attention within the College and everyday laundry (excluding suits) or linen repairs. Essential texts are not charged to pupils if returned in good condition and by the required deadline.
Pupils may be required to purchase some stationery items and Sixth Form texts. Fees for external exams are charged to parents. Costs for the CCF and certain other clubs and societies, as well as the cost of some trips and excursions, are charged to parents. At the College a small termly charge is added to fund House activities, and a further charge is applicable to fund Sixth Form Society activities. Charges are also made for additional individual lessons e.g. ESL. Full details of specific rates are available on request from the Finance Office.
Fees for individual instrumental and singing tuition are payable directly to relevant visiting music teachers.
Fees and Withdrawal
Fees are normally paid in four monthly direct debit instalments each term, starting in the September of the year of entry. Alternatively, fees may be paid in full on or before the first day of each term for which they are due. Details are available from the Finance Office. Governors reserve the right to refuse admission to a pupil or to require the withdrawal of an existing pupil whose fees are not paid.
Bank details for the transfer of fees, or the payment of a Registration fee or deposit can be found here.
A full term’s notice is required for the withdrawal of a pupil, change of status, or discontinuation of an optional extra. A full term’s fees, or the charge for the optional extra, is payable unless such notice has been given. Please see the Parent Contract for full details of notice periods.
