What is included in the school fees?

School fees always include the cost of teaching, and often include textbooks, materials and extracurricular activities. Some schools include the cost of lunch in their fees, while others charge for this separately (normally around £300 per term, per child). Most schools charge separately for entry to public exams (e.g. GCSEs and A levels).

Before registering your child with a school, we recommend that you check the school website and admissions policy in detail to find out what the school fees cover, as well as any additional payments you will have to make. You will normally need to pay a registration fee on application (typically £100–£300) which is often non-refundable, and a refundable deposit when you accept a school place.

Help with school fees in Surrey

Nearly all private schools in Surrey are able to offer financial assistance to children who meet their entrance criteria. The two main types of financial assistance are bursaries and scholarships, with sibling discounts available at some schools.

Surrey private school bursaries

Most private schools in Surrey provide means-tested financial assistance in the form of bursaries. These are offered on a sliding scale, meaning that children from households with a lower income are eligible for more assistance than those with a higher income.

Most private schools in Surrey offer bursaries that cover up to 100% of tuition fees; only a few offer partial assistance. Some schools offer additional assistance, such as help with the cost of school uniforms, lunch, transport and extracurricular activities, to pupils who receive 100% bursaries.

If you think you might be eligible for a bursary for a particular school, you will need to supply detailed financial evidence. You may also be visited at home by a professional appointed by the school to assess your financial circumstances.

Surrey private school scholarships

Scholarships are awards offered to children who demonstrate exceptional talent in their entrance exams (academic scholarships) or in a co-curricular area (e.g. art, design & technology, drama, music or sport).

Most private schools in Surrey offer scholarships, and many of these carry a fee remission. This is typically around 10% of school fees – although Sir William Perkins’s School and Caterham School offer academic scholarships of up to 50% for some eligible Year 7 candidates. A small number of schools do not provide a financial award as part of their scholarships.

If your child is applying for a scholarship, they will usually need to complete additional testing and an interview, alongside the main entrance process. They will also need to maintain a high standard in the area to which their scholarship applies throughout their time at the school.

Sibling discounts at private schools in Surrey

Some private schools in Surrey offer discounted fees to families who have multiple children enrolled at the school at the same time (e.g. Prior’s Field, Halliford School, Belmont School, Cranleigh School, Reigate Grammar School, and Manor House School). Such discounts are typically available for the third and subsequent siblings and range from 10–50% of school fees.
