School fees 2016/17
Registration Fee: £170
Applicable to new students only. The non-refundable Registration Fee is paid upon submission of a completed Registration Form.

- No deposit is required for the Nursery years or Reception at the Pre-Prep. Parents of all other year groups must pay a refundable Acceptance Deposit of £1,000.
- For non UK/EEA citizens, as well as the Acceptance Deposit there is an Additional Deposit equal to one term’s fees required. This is held separately and not used to offset school fees.
- The deposit is payable upon acceptance of a place at the School. The deposit, or balance of the deposit, is refundable when the child leaves the School. The deposit is non-refundable if, once a place has been accepted, the child does not take up the place at Gresham’s.
|Nursery & Reception (full time per term)#||£3075|
|Full time (per day for age 3 years)||£56.00|
|Morning (per day for age 3 years)||£36.00|
|Music||£22.00 (per lesson)|
Where pupils share music lessons the fee will be split equally between them. In the Pre-Prep School, if music lessons are shorter than standard (as agreed between the music teacher and parents), the lesson fee will be adjusted on a pro rata basis.
#Early Years Funding (eligible pupils only)
In Nursery and Reception morning sessions (including lunch) for eligible 3 and 4 year olds are charged to parents and places are reserved for the 3 hour afternoon session of the same day free of charge as this is when the Early Years Funded hours are provided. Eligible pupils are therefore offered up to their maximum 15 hours/week free entitlement in the afternoons.
|Day (Years 3 and 4)||£4610|
|+Learning Support||£36.00 (per lesson)|
|Music||£24.00 (per lesson)|
* Flexi boarding is available at the Prep School at a charge of £47 per night and £63 per night at the Senior School. Flexi boarding is subject to availability of beds.
|+Learning Support and English as a Second Language||£36.00 (per lesson)|
|Music||£26.00 (per lesson)|
+ Where pupils share lessons the fee will be split equally between them. Additional learning support arrangements will be considered on an individual basis.
* Pupils joining the Senior School in the Sixth Form have an additional £400 supplement charged to each term’s fees. The higher fee for the Sixth Form entrants reflects the higher cost of post 16 education. For those joining the School at Year 9 the differential costs are averaged out over a five year period.
Parents with three or more children at Gresham’s (from the same family at the same time) currently attract a sibling reduction if the youngest child is at least full-time in the Pre-Prep Reception class. The basis of this is that 10% of the relevant day fee is deducted from the fees of each child when there are three children in the School, whilst 25% of the relevant day fee is deducted from the fee of each child when there are four or more pupils qualifying.
Where any child who is entitled to a sibling reduction also becomes entitled to a scholarship or bursary, the scholarship or bursary reduces the sibling allowance for that child.
The Governors of Gresham’s School reserve the right, with reasonable notice, to amend the basis on which sibling reductions are made.
Charge for activities
From time to time across all three Schools, Gresham’s is able to offer a variety of activities that pupils may take part in. Often there is an additional cost to the School associated with such activities and consequently these costs will be passed on to parents/guardians. The School endeavours, wherever possible, to seek permission from parents/guardians for one-off charges of £30 or above. For one-off costs below £30 the School assumes parental consent unless otherwise informed.
Pupils wishing to stay in Boarding Houses over home weekends will be charged at the rate of £63 per night. This is for accommodation only.
Fees and charges may be paid by bank transfer, by direct debit or by debit or credit card. The instructions for the attention of your bank or building society can be obtained from the Finance Department.
Fees or charges that remain unpaid at the due date will incur a 1.5% per month late payment surcharge.
Those parents wishing to pay fees in advance may take advantage of the School’s “Fees in Advance” Scheme for which further information may be obtained from the Finance Department.
Those parents wishing to make monthly School fee payments may like to consider the following option:
Parents must give a term’s notice for either their child leaving the school or for a move from boarding to day. Where a term’s notice is not given, a term’s fees are due in lieu of notice. The notice must be in writing and addressed to the Business and Finance Director.
