Coach Fares

Coach fees are billed termly and are determined by the number of days in each term.  It is possible to book one-way tickets, return journeys and (if a route is not full) casual tickets.  The costs range from £200 to £760 per term depending on the length of the term, the coach stop and whether or not you are purchasing a return journey or a one-way ticket.

You can find out more about the coach service here.

Fees in Advance Scheme

The school operates a fees in advance scheme which allows you (or your family members) to make payment, by means of a lump sum, for all or part of your child’s fees for their time at school, including extras.  The amount you deposit with the school is then used towards paying your child’s fees as they fall due each term.  In return for paying your fees in advance, the school pays a commutation rate of 3.50% p.a. which approximates to a return on investment of 4.16% p.a. for higher rate taxpayers.

It should be noted that the scheme does not fix future school fees, however the rate of return you receive will be guaranteed at the time the money is received and for the duration it is held by the school.

Please see below the document which gives more details of the scheme with some worked examples.  The FIA Calculator spreadsheet calculates a quotation for your chosen termly amount.
