Termly Costs

All fees are charged termly in advance and cover the regular curriculum, school books, stationery and materials.  School lunches and trips are charged separately. Public examination fees in Years 11, 12 and 13 are additional and added to the final summer term invoice. For the latest information on the potential addition of VAT on school fees, please see the GDST website.

From 1 September 2023 our fees will be:
– Junior School £5713.00  per term
– Senior School £7409.00  per term

How to Pay

Fees may be paid annually or termly in advance, or by monthly instalments (four per term) by Direct Debit to the Girls’ Day School Trust. The GDST also operates a prepaid fees scheme for a minimum term of two years.

Details are available on request from the Registrar, Ms L. Whitaker-Smith.

Parents are asked to give a whole term’s notice if extra subjects or lunches are to be discontinued.

All applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable registration fee of £150 (£175 for overseas applicants).

Acceptance Deposit
In both the Junior and Senior School once the offer of a place is made and the place accepted, a non-refundable Confirmation Deposit of £1500 is payable to confirm the place.

Sibling Discount
Parents with three or more children at the school at the same time will be eligible for a discount of 20% off fees for the third (and any subsequent) child. The discount will remain with the pupil until they leave the school.


Pupils from Reception up to and including Year 9 are expected to have school lunches. This cost is added to the fees invoice.

From 1st September 2023 the cost of lunches will be:

Reception to Year 6:     £265 per term
Year 7, 8 and 9:             £285 per term

For students in Years 10-13, parents can choose to pay the termly lunch fees or may have lunch on a pay-as-you-go basis using Parent Pay via their thumbprint, or can opt to bring in their own lunches. All Senior School students can also buy snacks and healthy food from the dining room at breaktime through Parent Pay.

Music Tuition
The cost for individual music lessons with our specialist Visiting Music Teachers (VMTs) taken during school hours is £29 per 35 minute lesson. Payment for these is separate and arranged by the VMTs.

Fees do not include the cost of trips.  In both the Junior School and the Senior School an additional £40 per pupil will appear on the termly invoices from September 2023.  This covers all day trips, except residential ones and some evening theatre visits, for which parents will be notified separately.
