The Charitable Trust which runs the College has a policy of keeping the parents' commitment as low as possible, consistent with the education policy of the College.
(a) The cost of staff salaries and all other costs of running the College are paid by the TERMLY FEES payable in advance for each child starting at the College.
As from 1st September 2014 these will be as follows:
- Senior School £ 3752 per term
- Junior Department £ 2567 per term
- Infant Department £ 2567 per term
These are increased in September of each year, but in any case a full term's notice of any increase will be given. A full term's notice of withdrawal of your child from the College is required. In default, a full term's fees are payable in lieu of notice.
School Fee Plan

(b) Some books required by 'A' level and some GCSE pupils are charged as provided.
(c) There is a voluntary 5 or 7-year Deed of Covenant Scheme to pay for College Buildings and Equipment and new developments, which we encourage all parents to pay. The annual amount requested is £200 which after Gift Aid tax recovery is worth £250 to the Trust. The Covenant is payable by Bankers' Order and donors are asked to sign a Gift Aid declaration to evaluate the tax recovery. Alternatively a non-refundable lump sum of £1,200 may be paid in advance as Gift Aid to cover the full period.
