Lunch is compulsory from Reception to Year 7 and costs £586.26 per year. This amount is in addition to the school fees.
In order to prevent a number of financial requests throughout the year for curriculum trips, payment for the majority of these is collected within the school fees. This element is termed 'extras' and will vary across the year groups depending on the number of planned curriculum trips.
