Basic fees are broadly inclusive of all stationery, lunches, games, dancing lessons (except Ballet) and tuition on the recorder. Optional tuition can be arranged through the school in a variety of musical instruments. Speech and Drama and additional coaching in certain sports, such as skiing, is available. All these activities will be charged in addition to the basic fees.
School Fees are payable on or before the first day of term for which they are due. The Offer Letter and Acceptance Form give rise to a legally binding agreement which takes effect when the Acceptance Form and deposit are received by the school. Parents should note that on accepting a place, they become liable for the first term’s fees if they subsequently do not take it up.

Schedule of Bus Fares (2022-23)
Bus faresBuses will run from/to the following areas in the mornings and early afternoons: Watford / Harpenden / Radlett / St Albans / Aston Clinton / Rickmansworth
In addition, a late bus will leave school (Mondays to Thursdays only) at 6.10pm which operates in the Harpenden and St Albans areas. Prices for bus fares for 2023-24 will be released in June/July.

We will write to you in due course regarding this.
