Our school fees are as inclusive as possible, and cover all of the teaching, accommodation and living costs. They also cover the charges that are common to all pupils, such as the expenses of games, activities,  membership of the CCF, use of the library, initial stationery pack, laundry and sewing. We are aware that some families will need help with school fees and more information is available on the Bursaries and Financial Assistance  page.
