Our fees include all boarding and laundry charges (if applicable), tuition, games, Medical Centre access, Sports Centre use, library, lectures and some entertainment. Some variable expenses, and certain optional extras including music lessons, are charged on the school account.

We review our fees annually and these are subject to increase from time to time. Fees for the new academic year are set in the June of the preceeding term.
