School Fees

Our fees are as inclusive as possible, covering not only our exceptional academic tuition but a large portion of school life.

Our Fee to Grade Ratio was rated as ‘Very Good’ by the Telegraph in August 2023.


Fees must be paid by direct debit on either a termly or monthly basis. A deposit is payable on acceptance of a place.

A family who enrol their third or any subsequent daughter into any GDST school will be eligible for a 20% fee reduction for the third and all subsequent girls. The girls must be attending a GDST school at the same time before a discount can be awarded. Once awarded the discount will remain with the student until she leaves the school.
