We firmly believe that a great education shouldn't just be accessible by those of a high financial status

As such, we have worked hard to ensure that the fantastic experience your child will receive comes at a fair price

Unlike most other independent day schools, we do not increase our fees as the children get older. We have a very simple pricing structure and charge one price for everyone of every age. 

School fees are £759 per month (based on a 12 month direct debit) Fees can be paid on a monthly or termly basis. A fully cooked lunch and snacks at break times are also provided at no additional cost.

Our school fees cover so much more than just general schooling. These fees also cover:

  • A range of in-school and after school clubs (some additional clubs incur a small charge - see Clubs and Tuition page for info)
  • General school trips
  • Specialist 11+ tuition
  • Specialist teachers
  • Small class sizes - never more than 20 students in one class
  • High staff to pupil ratios - quite often 2 or 3 staff members per class
  • 19 weekly swimming lessons for Form III to Form VI with exclusive use of the pool facilities
  • and much more...

Discounts are also available for siblings.


Children can begin attending The Mount School the September after they turn 3 years old. We offer schooling up to the age of 11 years, and following the completion of Form 6, children will move on to a secondary school of their choice.  Admissions can take place at any time throughout the school year if places are available.

30 Hours Free Childcare

If your child is between the ages of 3 - 5 years, you will automatically receive 15 hours free childcare funding. Many parents are also able to claim an additional 15 hours of funding, meaning that you could receive 30 hours worth of your early years school provision for free.

For many families, this means that the actual cost of sending your child to The Mount School for Early Years provision is significantly cheaper than attending a general nursery.

We do not tie you into a 52 week payment contract. Our academic school year operates for 37 weeks each year, which further assists in keeping costs low.
