Our founder’s dream four centuries ago was to establish a school where boys of any background could benefit from the life changing experience of an excellent education. Today’s Perse is very different to that of the early days – not least in welcoming girls – yet our ethos remains true to the founding principles. We work hard to keep fees relatively affordable – usually lower than those of similar independent schools.
- School fees per term – £5,442
- School fees per year – £16,326
Lunch is included in the fees.
- Registration fee – £150
- Securing and induction fee – £595
The registration fee reflects the costs incurred by the School in administering the admissions process before the offer of a place is made and is non-refundable irrespective of whether or not the registered child actually attends the entrance tests.
The securing and induction fee is payable when an offer of a place is accepted and reflects the administration costs incurred by the School in the preparation for new pupils entering the School including new pupil and parent induction arrangements. This fee is non-refundable.
Fees are reviewed annually and the fees for the following year are usually announced at the end of March.
We do not offer scholarships for Prep pupils, but pupils transferring from the Prep to the Upper are considered for scholarships at the Upper.
Emergency help with fees (bursaries)
Although the school does not offer bursaries on entry into the Prep, limited bursary funds are available to provide short-term assistance to parents of Prep pupils who have experienced an unforeseen change in their financial circumstances. Such awards are subject to availability and cannot be guaranteed.
For more information about emergency bursary awards, please refer to the school’s Bursary Policy. Details of specific assistance for families who experience a change in their circumstances resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic are contained in the appendix of the policy. All bursary awards are subject to conditions of award, which can be found here.
