Fees and Bursaries

School Fees

The current Entrance Fee for The Leys is £150 which is payable at Application and is non-refundable.

Families will also be required to pay an additional £600 Entry Deposit which will be refunded when the pupil leaves the Schoool.

Board & Tuition (From September 2023)

Boarders £41,880 per year £13,960 per term
Home Boarders £31,095 per year £10,365 per term

Caution Money

Parents whose permanent residence is outside the UK will be required to deposit a full term’s fee less the Entry Fee in addition to the fees for the first term, unless they have paid fees in advance. This payment, which is held against the pupil’s final account, is a precaution against international exchange difficulties and is a requirement of most independent schools.


The Leys is committed to broadening access to the School by offering means-tested financial support to help parents with the payment of School fees. Such support is known as a Bursary and is awarded in the form of a discount on the fees. The value of the Bursary can be from 5% to 100% depending on financial, compassionate and other pertinent circumstances.

Assistance is offered to new applicants to the school and also to existing families where there is a change in financial circumstances. The School has a limited amount of funds available for Bursaries and seeks to allocate the funds to assist as many families as possible.

Please note that parents of new pupils who wish to apply for a Bursary must do so before their son or daughter is assessed for entry to the school.

For further information about the process, please contact the Finance Bursar, Mrs Mary Cooksey on +44 (0)1223 508909 or [email protected]
