# 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 15 hours/week free entitlement in the afternoons. Those in receipt of Early Years Funding are charged the fees stated for 3-4 year Nursery.

Childcare vouchers or tax free childcare accounts can only be used to pay for pre-school childcare (up to and including the Term a child turns 5).

* Where pupils share lessons the fee will be split equally between them. Where lessons are longer or shorter than 35 minutes the fee is pro-rated.

Supplementary Charges Information for Early Years Funding

Registration Fee

Non-refundable registration fee per pupil, £170. This is paid upon submission of a completed Registration Form.

Deposit

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • For pupils whose normal residence is outside the United Kingdom, as well as the Acceptance Deposit an Additional Deposit is required.

Coaching

One-to-one sports coaching is charged at £36 per hour. Where pupils share lessons the fee will be split equally between them. Where lessons are longer or shorter than 35 minutes the fee is pro-rated.

Boarding/Flexi Boarding

Occasional boarding is charged at £55 per night at Prep School and £74 at Senior School. Flexi boarding is subject to availability of beds.

Charge for Home Weekends

Pupils wishing to stay in Boarding Houses over home weekends will be charged at the rate of £88 per night.

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 £50 or above. For one-off costs below £50, the School assumes parental consent unless otherwise informed.

Forces Discount

Forces families in receipt of CEA are entitled to a 20% discount against the boarding fee. No sibling awards are given in these cases.

Sibling Reductions

Parents with three or more children at Gresham’s (from the same family at the same time) currently attract a sibling reduction from the term the youngest child starts paying full fees in Pre-Prep Reception class (i.e. not in receipt of Early Years Funding). The basis of this is that 10% of the relevant fee is deducted from the fees of each child when there are three children in the School, whilst 25% of the relevant 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.

Payment method

We ask that fees and charges are paid by direct debit. 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.

 Notice Period

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 Bursar.
