From September 2024

  • Junior School - £6,665 per term
  • Senior School - £8,158 per term

School lunches are charged separately (£330.60 per term in the Junior School and £336.30 per term in the Senior School), as are public examination fees. Charges also apply for occasional trips and visits as well as optional extras.

Payment of fees

Fees may be paid annually or termly in advance, or by monthly instalments (four per term) by Direct Debit to the Girls’ Day School Trust. GDST also operates a prepaid fees scheme for a minimum term of two years. Details are available on request.

Entrance administration fee and registration deposit

A non-refundable fee of £160 is charged for taking the entrance examination. A registration deposit is payable on the acceptance of a place and will be retained until the pupil leaves the school. The deposit will not be refunded if the place is not taken up.

Fees for music lessons

Fees for music lessons are £350 per cycle of ten 35-minute lessons. Visiting music teachers are self-employed; contracts for music tuition are made between parents and the teacher concerned. The school has no involvement with the contract and parents are billed directly by their daughter’s visiting music teacher(s). Fees should be settled before the start of each term and one term’s written notice should be given directly to the teacher when a girl wishes to discontinue music lessons, otherwise fees for one cycle of ten lessons will be payable in lieu.

South Hampstead gave me the confidence to talk, argue, laugh and fight as an equal with some of the most brilliant minds of my generation.
