Payment of fees
All fees must be paid via the Bank direct debit system. As is the practice of all independent schools, the fees are due and payable termly in advance before the first day of the term concerned. However, the Trust operates a scheme whereby the fees may be paid by monthly instalments and an application form can be obtained by writing to the Secretary of the Trust. The Trust’s regulations relating to fees and notice are set out in the agreement between parents and the Trust, and on the fee account.
Termly or monthly payment
All fees should be paid by direct debit termly on or before the first day of each term. Should you wish to pay monthly by direct debit, there will be a service charge of £24 per term. Fees are calculated on an annual basis. No reduction is applicable during terms when there is less teaching because of public examinations.
For a family with three or more daughters, the GDST is pleased to offer a 20% sibling discount on the third and subsequent sisters. This continues throughout the school career, even after the two older sisters have left.
Registration fees and deposits
Please note that the Royal High School operates on a three-term academic year. To register there is a non-refundable registration fee of £100. On accepting a place, a deposit of £500 (for day), £750 (for UK boarders) and £1,000 (for overseas boarders) is required. A deposit of a full term's fee will be required for international students from September 2021.
