All education during school hours is free. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of the National Curriculum with the exception of individual music tuition.

Voluntary contributions

The school invites parents to make voluntary contributions in order to enrich the curriculum and their children’s educational experience. These contributions are voluntary. Children and parents are treated equally regardless of their willingness or ability to contribute.
