Fees Per Term

Small class sizes

We believe that children learn best and are able to achieve their potential within small teaching groups.  Therefore, we feel that the majority of your fees should be dedicated to funding a high staff-to-pupil ratio, whilst priding ourselves on being one of the most affordable preparatory schools in Cheltenham. 

Every day is an Open Day

Visitors are always welcome, so please contact us to arrange a time or for an informal chat; you may wish to tour the school at work, meet staff and pupils or simply discuss payment options so that you can make an informed decision regarding school fees.

We offer bespoke, flexible payment plans to spread the cost of your child’s education over the academic year.
