Admission Charges

Registration fee:
£125 payable on registration and non-refundable.

Acceptance Deposit

We ask for £1,500 on acceptance of the offer of a place, which will be retained until your child leaves The Beacon. Please see section 3.3 of the School’s Terms and Conditions.

Your Fees Invoice

We produce the fees invoices at the end of each term, and they are generally sent out in the last week of the term by email.

The invoice is separated into two parts:

  1. The fees in advance for the following term, along with some optional termly payments in advance (such as School Fees Refund Scheme and Bursary Fund contribution, see below).
  2. Any extras (such as Bus or Breakfast Club charges) incurred during the term just ending, which are charged in arrears.

School Fee Plan

The School Fee Plan enables parents to spread the cost of school fees rather than paying a lump sum each term. For further information please click here.

Bursary Fund Contribution

This is made on a voluntary basis. The Beacon Bursary Fund is a charity set up and run independently of the School by three external trustees, with annually audited accounts.

Its purpose is to provide funding for the education of pupils of The Beacon whose parents run into financial difficulties, and may otherwise have to withdraw their son from School at a time that might be detrimental to his educational progress. The fund derives its income from parental donations, gift aid and investment income. The contribution rate (which in 2021/22 will be £28 a term) is reviewed annually by the trustees of the fund.

The contribution will automatically appear on your fee bill. If you are a UK taxpayer, The Beacon Bursary Fund can claim an additional 25p for every £1 you donate at no extra cost to you. Please complete our Gift Aid Declaration in order for your gifts to qualify.  If you do not wish to contribute to this fund, please exclude it from your payment and we will credit your account. It should not then appear on your future bills.

Pupils’ Personal Accident Insurance Scheme

All pupils are automatically part of this scheme – there is no extra charge. It provides payment for permanent disabilities or death resulting from an accident, and covers all activities, both in and outside School.

Please click here for further details.

Advance Payment of Fees Scheme

Parents wishing to pay fees for several years in advance may do so via our Advance Payment of Fees scheme.

Under this scheme, school fees may be paid for several years in advance in return for a discount. Should you wish to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will send you the scheme information/application pack.

School Fees Insurance

This is an insurance scheme whereby a contribution towards your son’s school fees will be paid (up to and including university) in the event of a parent becoming critically ill or dying. Please click here for more information.
