School Fees

School Fees from 1 September 2017

Our governing body understands that for many families, the affordability of fees is a significant challenge. They are mindful of this and each academic year actively looks at areas where Prior Park Schools can increase its efficiency and effectiveness without compromising the quality of its educational offering.

School fees are broken down into manageable payments across the three terms and can even be paid monthly by direct debit. If you would like more in depth information about fees, our School Bursar is always happy to talk through any questions you may have.

1. School Fees:

Per Annum

Year 9

Full Fee

£3,503

£10,509

Year 10 & 11

Please Note: A full term's notice is required before the removal of a pupil. In default of so doing, one term's fees in lieu of such notice will be charged.  

Every effort is made to keep ‘extras’ to a minimum but it is likely that you will be billed for extra activities such as educational trips and activities.  Your permission will be sought for your child to attend an activity that will generate an ‘extras’ charge in excess of £10. 

2. Payment of School Fees

Fees are due and payable on or before the first day of each term. Late payments increase the school's costs and affect fee levels for all parents. We reserve the right to charge interest on outstanding balances. If interest is applied it will be added at a rate of 1% per month from the second day of term. There are three ways to pay your fees and extras:

  • By bank transfer to the account of 'Prior Park School', account number: 02150002, sort code: 60-83-14 (Gibraltar International Bank plc). Please ensure that the pupils name and account number are quoted on the transfer details.
  • By cheque payable to 'Prior Park School' on or before the first day of term.
  • Payments can also be made monthly by standing order.

3. Sibling Discounts

Prior Park Schools are pleased to award a discount to parents who have two or more children simultaneously at our schools. A discount of 5% will be applied for a second child, 10% for a third child, 15% for a fourth child and 20% for a fifth child. Subject to the points below:-

·         sibling discount will be applied in addition to any Scholarship or similar award;

·         discounts will not be applied in addition to any assistance the family receives in the form of a Bursary. This is because the level of support given by Prior Park in these cases already takes account of all factors including the presence of siblings at other Prior Park schools;

·         discounts will be applied to the fees of the oldest child. That is, if there are two children the older will receive a 5% discount. If there are three children the oldest will receive a 10% discount and the middle child a 5% discount while all three are at Prior Park schools;

·         the scheme will be applied regardless of the stage of education within Prior Park Schools; i.e. it does not matter whether siblings are in the College, the Preparatory School, the Paragon or Gibraltar, providing they are in full-time education;

·         discounts will normally be a percentage of the relevant school fee.

The discounts applied can be clearly seen in the following table:

4. Bursaries  

Bursaries are awarded according to the Prior Park Schools Means Tested Bursary Policy in response to parental need, either to relieve difficulty in the family of an existing pupil, or to enable entry to Prior Park by pupils whose parents could not otherwise afford the fees.

A completed Bursary Application Form is required from the parent(s) as a statement of the family’s financial position. The Financial Controller will be delighted to discuss individual applications.
