We do not receive any grant or aid from the government. The fees are based on a sliding scale depending on parental income. Details of the fees are appended below.
School fees for the year commencing 2nd September 2019
The fees for the first child in the family are 10% of the gross family income (including any benefits and tax credits) for the year ending 31st March 2019 to the nearest £ up to a maximum of £45,000 annually. For example:
If the total annual family income is £15,000 then the annual fee will be £1,500; that is £125 a month.
If the total annual family income is £30,000 then the annual fee will be £3,000; that is £250 a month.
If the total annual family income is £45,000 or more then the annual fee will be £4,500; that is £375 a month.
A levy of £40 a month is added to fees for pupils in Key Stage 4 to take into account the extra costs incurred for teaching and administrating GCSEs.
There is a reduction in the fees for the second child and subsequent children. These are currently as follows:
Second child: Fee of £1,800 per annum (£150 per month)
Third child: Fee of £900 per annum (£75 per month)
Fourth and subsequent children: Free
Families who pay the top rate of fees will not be required to verify their income levels.
We tithe the gifts given to us to establish a bursary fund to help families experiencing financial difficulties.
Fees are paid monthly, a month in advance. Our preferred method is by direct debit or standing order. If this is not convenient for parents, a cheque made payable to the school is acceptable on the specified date.
