*The minimum number of sessions that your child must attend in Reception are five mornings and three afternoons increasing to full-time at the start of the term of their fifth birthday or by the start of the summer term if their birthday falls in the summer holidays. Please note full fees for lunches and tuition are charged in Reception, no reduction is made for a child who is not attending full time.

Sibling discounts of 7% of the basic tuition fee will apply to the elder child of two in fulltime education at the Preparatory School/Blundell's or 10% and 7% respectively for the elder two, should there be three children.

Please note that if a pupil is awarded any other concession, then this takes priority and any potential sibling discount ceases or does not apply. For the avoidance of doubt, sibling discount does not apply to pupils on the local fee tariff which applies in years 9 to 13 at the Senior School.

All fees are payable on or before the first day of the term for which they are due. A surcharge of 2% per month will be made on overdue accounts.

Concessions may be withdrawn for the term if payment is not received on or before the first day of term.

Please contact the School for the registration procedure.
