Fees for the Academic Year 2016/17 are:
£3,480 per term
Infant and Junior Schools:
£2,586 per term
Fees are invoiced to parents termly at the beginning of each term, September, January and April. Fees are payable by Direct Debit and may be paid either termly or over 9 or 11 or 12 months. Further details on this scheme are available from the Bursar's office.
We also offer a Fees In Advance Scheme where parents pay a lump sum towards their child's education. This method of payment attracts a commutation of 3%. Further details on this method of payment along with details of the Direct Debit scheme are available from The Bursar's office, telephone 0161 764 4442.
The cost of optional extras, e.g. School meals and transport, will also be invoiced on a termly basis.
Private music lessons by visiting peripatetic music teachers are invoiced by those teachers direct to parents.
Fees are reviewed annually and parents notified in advance of any increase.
Additional Fees 2015/16: -
Music Tuition: £14.25 per half hour lesson (paid directly to the peripatetic staff). Infant music lessons - £9.50 per half hour shared lesson. £9.50 per twenty minute private lesson.
School Lunches: Payment in advance for school lunches only applies to pupils in Infant School. More information on the food available at BGS can be found here: Healthy Eating at BGS.
The standard meal charge, currently £3.00 for seniors and £2.80 for Infant and Junior, (although girls may spend more if they wish) is reviewed annually. School dinners are not compulsory but packed lunches should be eaten in the Dining Hall.
Educational Visits: Visits are regularly organised by departments in term time. Actual costs are charged, with no hidden extras, and parents are expected to meet these in full. In addition, various holidays at home and abroad are organised which are, however, entirely optional.
