FeesLinks in this section
School fees are charged termly and cover all the costs incurred in the usual course of a boy’s education and boarding during the term. From September 2017 the fee is £8,875 per term. They are invoiced in advance and payable by the first day of each term.
Other charges - for extra activities, such as musical instrument lessons, fencing, tennis etc. - are invoiced in arrears. A list of the available activities and the charges is sent to parents before the start of each term. They are payable by the first day of the next term.
Charges for insurances and school fees protection are charged in advance and are again payable by the first day of each term. Personal accident insurance is compulsory and included within the school fees. Medical insurance and school fees protection are optional. Charges for incidental expenses, such as taxis and toothbrushes, are invoiced in arrears.
Either a full term’s notice or a payment of a term’s fees in lieu of notice must be given, if a boy is withdrawn from the school. The Governors review the level of fees annually in June.
A registration charge of £75 is payable, when a boy’s name is entered on the school’s future places list. A deposit of £750 is payable two years before a boy joins the school. This deposit will confirm the boy’s place at Ludgrove and be credited to the final invoice when the boy leaves the school.
The Governors of Ludgrove are committed to broadening access to Ludgrove in order to ensure that, as far as possible, boys who would otherwise thrive here and be an asset to the school are not prevented from coming for financial reasons. To that end, limited funds are available on a means-tested basis to assist with school fees. Such assistance is necessarily aimed at prospective parents but may exceptionally be provided to existing parents or guardians whose circumstances have materially changed.
