Among the most important things parents provide their children is an education. We know that an independent school education is an investment; the cost of which is a factor for some families in making their school decision.

We have gone to considerable lengths to ensure that our fee structure is as inclusive as possible, with very few extra costs for parents to meet during the school year.

Our fees include textbooks, sporting activities (including horseriding for the Prep Department) and transport.

Payment must be made by the first day of each term, or by monthly standing order for a small extra charge.

School fees are reviewed annually, usually prior to the end of the Spring Term, and parents are notified of any subsequent changes.  Please note that fees are likely to increase each year to keep pace with rising costs in education.

The Parkgate Personal Accident Scheme covers all children and the cost is included in the school fees.

The fee structure for 2024-2025 will be as follows:

Tuition Fees per term


2 ½ – 4 years (per morning/afternoon per term)£714
2 ½ – 3 years (3 mornings – standalone package)£2,026
2 ½ – 4 years (5 mornings – standalone package)£3,376
2 ½ – 4 years (5 full days – standalone package)£5,939

There are three terms in each academic year (Autumn, Spring and Summer).

In the first year of Nursery (N1 – Ducklings), ages 2 1/2 – 3 yrs approximately, our children usually attend a minimum of 3 mornings each week (most commonly Monday, Wednesday and Friday).

In the second year of Nursery (N2 – Cygnets), ages 3-4 approximately, our children usually attend a minimum of 5 mornings each week, and most increase the number of sessions attended during the year, as they prepare for full-time school the following year.

A UK Government nursery grant is also available for 3-4 year olds (and for 2 year olds if you have the required code) – this is deducted from our fees for all eligible children.

If you would like to select a bespoke number of weekly nursery sessions, they will be charged at a rate of £714 per morning/afternoon per term.

Any extra ‘ad hoc’ nursery sessions, where possible, will be charged at a rate of £70 per individual morning/afternoon session.

All children can be dropped off from 8:25am. Nursery hours are from 9am-12noon or 9am-3pm.  We also have an Early Bird Club and an After School Club. Children staying for afternoon nursery sessions can have lunch in school, either packed lunch or school lunch.

Where three children of the family are attending the school, a discount of 10% will be applied to the tuition fee for the youngest child.

Where there are four children attending the school concurrently, a discount of 12.5% will be applied to the tuition fee of the youngest child.

The discount will be applied for all academic terms where all children stipulated above remain at Parkgate House School.
