2017 - 2018 Fees
The boarding fees for the 2017 – 2018 academic year will be £30,447 per annum (weekly boarding) and £36,411 per annum (full boarding).
The day fees will be set by the Board of Governors in February and we expect an increase of approximately 4% on the 2016 – 2017 fees (currently £18,618). The new amount will be published as soon as confirmation is received.
The fees are payable termly in advance (three terms), or monthly by direct debit.
2016 - 2017 Fees
The fees for the 2016 - 2017 academic year are £18,618 (day), £29,704 (weekly boarding) and £35,522 (full boarding). The fees are payable termly in advance (£6,206 day pupils, £9,902 weekly boarding and £11,841 full boarding), or monthly by direct debit.
The fees include the cost of most stationery and text books, games and school societies, but exclude a small number of items, such as public examination and UCAS entry fees. Individual music tuition is provided at an extra charge. In addition, an entrance fee of £130 is payable on the first term’s account for those who have been accepted for admission. School lunches are compulsory for Lower First and Upper First boys only and are invoiced termly at a fixed price of £3.90 per day.
A deposit of £800 (day students) or £2,500 (UK boarding students) or one term's fees (overseas boarding students) is payable on acceptance of a place at Whitgift. This will be retained in full until the pupil leaves, on completion of his full School Course, when it will be refunded less any balance owing to the School. Once a place has been accepted, if a boy is withdrawn at any point before joining Whitgift, a full term's fees will be due, in addition to the loss of the deposit.
The Entrance Examination fee which accompanies the Application Form is £100 for UK students and £130 for overseas students. If late applications are accepted, an extra £20 will be charged.
The Governors reserve the right to review or alter fees at any time and with a notice period of half a term.
Remission of Fees
Parents who would like their son to come to Whitgift should not be deterred by financial reasons from applying as it is the policy of the Whitgift Foundation to make the education offered as widely available as possible by way of scholarships, bursaries and boarding awards.
