Fees | Thorpe Hall School



Thorpe Hall School offers the following flexible fee payment options:


1. Monthly Instalments

Instead of paying the full tuition amount upfront, you can choose to pay in monthly direct debit instalments. This allows you to spread the cost over 12 regular, manageable monthly instalments each year. Monthly Instalments are only available to parents with children in Reception upwards

2. Termly Payments

We also offer the option to make termly payments. This is the most common form of payment at Thorpe Hall School.

3. Upfront Payments

For Preparatory and Senior school fees, families are welcome to pay up-front for the provision of education for their child for the whole or part of their school life here at Thorpe Hall. This enables parents to secure their child’s ongoing education at the current rate. This payment can be made upfront for a few years or for the full duration of your child’s schooling, and can be made as far in advance as you wish.

Although Nursery fees cannot be paid up-front, those parents with a child in Nursery who will be remaining at Thorpe Hall School into Prep can pay in advance at any time for future Reception and older years.
