Rydal Penrhos School fees

The following are the fees per term for the Autumn Term 2019, Spring and Summer Terms 2020. Each academic school year comprises three terms.

The fee covers the principal charges for tuition, exercise books, text books, Health Centre fees, meals, publications, plays, team fares, the Rydal Penrhos Society & St John’s Church, but does not include excursions, dry-cleaning and examination fees. Accident insurance will also be included in the fees from 2019-20.

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.
