School Fees

School fees and fees for additional services such as clubs, outings, extras etc. are determined by the Governors under the advisement of the Bursar. We aim to generate a surplus of income over expenditure to make possible the necessary investment in the provision of facilities, staff, resources and property. One full term’s notice will be given by the Governors regarding any increase in school fees.

The Registration Fee is £100 and is non-refundable A confirmation deposit of £300 is payable upon confirmation of a place. The fee will be repaid within 12 weeks of a child leaving Hopelands less any sums owing to the school at that time.

Hopelands Friends and Families Incentive Scheme

A one off £500 fees credit for any current Hopelands Family who actively refer the school to families and friends. Following a successful referral, ie: when the referred family’s first term’s school fees have been received, the referring family will receive a £500 one off fees credit on their account.

The referred family must confirm the referral in writing to the Bursar at the time of registration.

Please contact the Bursar, Sonja Jones on for further information.
