Full Boarder

A pupil who normally stays 7 days a week with his/her own allocated bed and study area. Laundry, all meals and some weekend activities are included in the fee.

Weekly Boarder

A pupil who stays from Monday to Friday inclusive (Mon’ to Thu’ in School House), with the provision of his/her own allocated bed and study area. Laundry and all meals during the week are included in the fee. Weekend stays are possible at the normal Flexi-boarder nightly cost, billed at the end of term.


A Flexi-boarder can choose an 11 night or a 22 night per term package taken on any Monday to Friday night during the term. This will give them their own designated bed and the ability to stay for supper and prep on any weekday evening. Extra nights can be taken at £60.00 per night billed at the end of term. Laundry is not included in this fee.


A day pupil goes home at the end of the programmed day. Breakfast and/or supper and evening prep can be taken at an additional daily charge.


Fees apply to parent(s) with whom the child normally resides living within a ten mile radius of the school.

Sibling Discounts

Sibling discount of 7% of the basic tuition fee (junior or senior) will apply to the elder child of two in full time education at Blundell’s School / Blundell’s Preparatory School 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.
