Fees

We benefit from being one of the 26 schools in The Girls' Day School Trust, the UK's largest educational charity. Our girls gain from the educational expertise that has been developed over the past 150 years - and our parents benefit too, as we are operating from a sound financial base and the GDST supports the school with a range of services to share expertise, enhance efficiency and reduce costs.

With economies of scale, it means we are able to keep our fees very competitive and offer an exceptional value for money education.

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.

Sibling Discount

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.
