School fees

The Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) aims to provide a high quality education at a competitive cost. In a recent survey by the Financial Times and the Sunday Times, GDST schools were identified as offering best value for money on the basis of A Level results and fee levels.

As one of 23 GDST schools and 2 academies, the largest group of independent schools in the UK, we are able to benefit from economies of scale and to provide cost-effective central services.

As a result our fees compare very favourably with other independent schools and include many items, which other schools charge as “extras” such as public examination fees, textbooks, external careers advice and wraparound care in the Prep and Pre-School.

Fees can be paid termly, or monthly by direct debit, and Scholarships and Bursaries are available in the Senior School and Sixth Form.

Scale of termly fees from September 2018

Pre-School, Reception Class, Year 1 and Year 2 – £2,500

Year 3 to Year 6 – £3,296

Senior School and Sixth Form – £4,663
