Registration Fees and Acceptance Deposits

Registration Fee

£50 per child, non-refundable Registration Fee to confirm registration.

Refundable Acceptance Deposit - Year 3 and above

An Acceptance Deposit of £500 is payable by all parents, resident in the UK, on acceptance of a place.

An Acceptance Deposit of £1000 is payable by all parents, resident outside of the UK, on acceptance of a place.

Please note - the refundable Acceptance Deposit will be automatically added to the Michaelmas bill of children moving up from Year 2 (Pre-Prep) to Year 3 (Prep).

Additional Deposit

Parents normally resident outside of the UK must pay a One Term Fee Deposit at the same time as the Acceptance Deposit.

A 10% sibling discount is offered when you have three children at Sherborne Schools (comprising of Sherborne Prep, Sherborne School, and Sherborne Girls).  

A sibling discount also applies where families have a third child at Sherborne School, but this only applies for the duration the children are at Sherborne Prep School. If the third child, then joins Sherborne School or Sherborne Girls, he or she will have the sibling discount and not the oldest child who had previously received it. 

The fourth and subsequent children will receive a 15% discount.
