Rydal Penrhos School fees

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.

Boarder fees also include accommodation and further meals.

We offer as an optional extra accident insurance and fees insurance.

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.
