School & Nursery Fees


School and Nursery fees from September 2023

We appreciate the significant investment involved when parents and guardians choose an independent education for their children. We always welcome an open discussion of individual circumstances and aim to support families towards the best education for their children. My children attend the school – I have seen first hand as a parent, and as Headmaster, what a difference this school makes to every single child that attends.

Our means-tested bursary programme supports pupils in Pre-prep and Prep who would not otherwise be able to afford a Glebe House School education. Here are some points to consider:

  • In reception, many children are eligible for Early Years Funding which can reduce the first year’s school fees by over £1,500.
  • We offer a 10-month interest-free payment plan, helping parents to spread the cost of school fees across the year.
  • Grandparents can contribute up to £3,000 per year, tax-free for each child, maximising the potential for wider family support.
  • We offer a five per cent sibling discount to second and subsequent children attending the school in the same period.
  • We offer a number of mean-tested bursaries that are managed in strict confidence.
  • With the help of The Independent Association of Prep Schools (IAPS) Grants Scheme, in certain circumstances we are able to offer a 100% bursary.
