A registration fee of £100 is made for sitting the School’s entrance tests.

The fees are payable termly in advance, or monthly by direct debit and include the cost of most stationery and textbooks, but exclude items such as trips, public examinations and UCAS entry fees. Individual music tuition is provided at an extra charge. Lunches at Preparatory are compulsory and are charged at £2.50 per day. Breakfast Club at Preparatory is also £2.50 a day. After School Club (Prep) is £12.50 if pre-booked and £14.50 ad-hoc. Term time plus (holiday club) is £42 per day. Mini bus: students must commit to either five mornings or five evenings (or both) per week per term. The cost is £3.00 per journey from September 2020. Minimum of one term.

Lunches at Seniors are optional. Old Palace runs a cashless catering system at Seniors so a student’s card needs to be credited with appropriate funds on a regular basis.

Security Deposits

To secure a place, written acceptance is required by the specified deadline along with a security deposit. For entry into Nursery the security deposit is £400. For entry into Reception for an internal candidate the security deposit must be topped up to £800. At all other points of entry to the School the security deposit is £800.

Should a candidate secure a place and then not join the School the deposit will not be refunded. In addition, parents will be required to pay, in full, the first term’s fees if they withdraw their child without giving one full term’s notice, to be received by the Head, prior to the start date. If written acceptance is not received by the specified deadline, the place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
