Prep School

£6,986 per term

Senior School

£8,330 per term

Fees include

School lunches, all curriculum related books, materials and some curriculum related external trips. Fees are inclusive of personal accident insurance.

Fees do not include

iPad for new Thirds (more information below), uniform, sports kit, tuition in instrumental music, subscriptions or payments for activities outside the curriculum, such as the CCF, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Cubs, Sea Scouts. Fees charged by external examination boards are added to the fee account in the relevant years.

Each term, a subscription charge of £9 for the Prep School and £12 for the Senior School is collected for lifetime alumni membership.


All pupils joining the Thirds (Year 7) will be supplied with an iPad. This will help us to control the online safety of all pupils whilst enhancing their educational provision.

The supply of these devices will come from a third party provider, who will also provide insurance. There will be a variety of payment options available. At the end of the Lower Fourth, the pupil will own the device outright.

Accepting a Place

A deposit of £2500 is payable on acceptance of a place. £500 of the deposit will be credited to the first terms’ fees. The remainder will be retained until the pupil leaves the school.

Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information.


At Bancroft’s we work hard to keep extras to a minimum so that budgeting is as straightforward as possible for parents.

Extras are only added to the fee bill with parents’ permission, and are charged a term in arrears.

Trips and Expeditions which are not part of the curriculum are charged at cost and payable in full, usually in instalments, before the trip takes place.

Payment of Fees

School fees are due on or before a pupil’s first day of each term and must be paid in full either by Direct Debit or Direct Bank Transfer.  Parents are reminded there is a contractual relationship with the School in accordance with the Terms and Conditions.

Payment of any extras for the previous term are due on or before the pupil’s first day of term.

We prefer parents to pay fees by direct debit. Under the Schools’ direct debit scheme, fees are paid either termly on the first day of term or in 10 monthly payments starting on 3 August and ending on 3 May annually.

Parents with financial difficulties that might lead to failure to pay fees on time are encouraged to contact the Bursar; please be aware that the School is under no obligation to waive or defer any sum due.

We may not allow your child to attend school if you do not pay fees on time.

If you do not make payment by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 3% pa above the base rate of the school’s bank, currently Barclays.

Please note, we do not accept cash payments for school fees.

Bancroft’s does not offer any discounts for siblings or other special groups.
