Enquire Now

The following are the fees per term for the Autumn Term 2020, Spring and Summer Terms 2021. Each academic school year comprises three terms.

We try to ensure our fees cover as much as possible so that there are no “hidden extras” and so the fees include the principal charges for tuition, exercise and text books, meals, publications, team fares, academic examination fees (excluding re-sits) plus excursions which form part of the curriculum. Also included in our fees is wrap around care until 6pm and accident insurance.

Boarder fees also include accommodation and further meals.

The School Fees Protection Scheme and personal effects insurance are optional.

Forces Bursaries and sibling discounts (at 5%) are available.

Registration and Acceptance

A non-refundable registration fee of £100 is payable on completion of the registration form (£75 for nursery and kindergarten).

Upon acceptance of the offer of a place, a deposit of £500 is required for a day pupil, or £2,500 for a weekly/full boarding pupil, which is accounted for at the end of the pupil’s final term. The deposit becomes non-refundable if, once the offer of a place has been accepted at Rydal Penrhos, the child does not take up the place.

Payment and notice

Fees are payable in accordance with the School’s Terms and Conditions. Parents can pay in 10 instalments August to May by Standing order into our bank account if they choose. That is 10% of the yearly fees in all months except June and July. This applies only for fees; recharges will be invoiced at the end of each term as before and need to be settled separately. There is no credit charge for this.

Parents must give one term’s notice in writing to withdraw a child from the school.
