For new families, the School has a "First Child Free" policy for the first child for their first year, as long as they join in Lower School. This policy means that for the first child in their first year, there are no fees to pay. If two or more children from the same family join at the same time and at least one joins Lower School, then the eldest Lower School pupil will be considered to be the 'First'.
There are then two pathways, depending on whether your child is entering at Lower School (left-hand column) or Middle School onwards (right-hand column).

Additional Monthly Gifts
We do not receive funding from the government or any other external body, but keep the minimum contributions very low because the staff and supporters of the school wish to give maximum opportunity to as many families as possible. In this context we believe it is reasonable for families with higher incomes (who can often afford to contribute more) to consider making additional monthly gifts to make up some of the shortfall; a number of families pay a supplement between £30 and £120 per child per month. This is an entirely voluntary payment eligible for Gift Aid. We do recognise that every family’s situation is different (such as where income is made up solely or mainly from one parent and is somewhat less tax efficient; or where you are self-employed and your income varies). Please contact the Bursar at any time to discuss this further.
