2024-2025 Tuition Fees - Announcement Thursday 6 June 2024


The termly tuition fee for Princethorpe for the academic year 2024-2025 will be £5,623. Other fee-related information, such as bus fares and Learning Support charges will be communicated later this term.

With the impending general election, we are very aware, of course, that for all independent schools, there is the possibility that VAT could be added to fees at some stage over the next year or beyond. We are therefore taking a longer-term approach to our fee strategy aimed at minimising the impact in any future single year. We would do this by sharing with parents the burden of any VAT imposed. Our aim as always is to keep any adjustments to a minimum, whilst continuing to provide the highest standard of education and pastoral care for our pupils.

Liz Griffin, Foundation Chair of Trustees

Fees in Advance Scheme

The Foundation has had a Fees in Advance (FIA) Scheme for some years. This is reviewed periodically by Trustees of the Foundation. A recent review has been completed and Trustees have agreed to an updated FIA Scheme for pupils across our Foundation schools.

Parents, guardians or third-party fee payers can use the Scheme to pay for all or part of the tuition fees for their child’s education at one of our schools in return for the benefit of a discount on fees, currently set at 2% per annum.
