Fees are payable by Direct Debit on the first day of each term. The collection dates for the year are on the last page of your invoice. Please be advised that late payment will incur interest charges at 8% above the base rate of the Bank of England accruing on a daily basis.
For monthly payment, the school has an arrangement with School Fees Plan. More information is available here.
A fee of £125 is payable, which is non-returnable, when a child is registered.
Half a term’s fee is payable on acceptance of a place, to be repaid on the final invoice, raised at the end of the final term at St James, i.e. July.
Please note that a full term’s fee is payable for overseas applicants. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for full details.
Lunches are provided free within the basic fee.

Class outings and holidays when arranged by the staff will be advised to you with the cost involved.
The school provides personal accident insurance for all pupils at no additional cost. Details are available from the Bursary.
