What does it cost?
Croydon High is an Independent fee-paying day school for girls aged 3-18 and is proud to be part of the Girls’ Day School Trust, a charitable organisation which re-invests all income for the benefit of pupils.
The fees parents pay are a big part of ‘the GDST difference.’ They enable us to improve facilities in our school and to continually invest in the outstanding teaching and non-teaching staff we employ and in the infrastructure shared across our network of 23 schools and two academies across England and Wales.

Important to note:
*All parents are eligible for the government grant, covering 15 hours education from the term following their daughter’s third birthday, up until the term in which your daughter turns five. This is deducted from the above fees at source by the GDST. Full details and fees for Nursery can be downloaded HERE
Fees cover the regular curriculum, school books, stationery and other materials, choral music, games and swimming and careers guidance.
Fees also cover public examination fees which are often charged for separately by many independent schools.
Fees do not cover lunches (currently £226.55 per term) and compulsory for girls up to Year 10.
Fees do not cover extra-curricular Music and Speech and Drama lessons – full details of these additional costs can be found in our Admissions Guide.
Full details on our uniform regulations can be found here.
Please note we do not operate a school shop and all uniform must be purchased on-line from our suppliers School Blazer.
We run numerous trips to enhance the academic offer across the curriculum. A small number of these are compulsory such as those which are a requirement of the academic curriculum for GCSE and A level for example, Geography field trips.
Payment of Fees
We ask that fees be paid by the Bank Direct Debit system and the necessary forms for this will be provided either by the school or from Trust’s Head Office.
The fees may be paid in advance annually or termly or by monthly installments which equate to four equal payments of the termly fee.
Registration Fee and Deposit
A fee of £100 will be charged when you apply to the school – unfortunately this is not refundable.
A deposit of £750 is chargeable when you accept a place and this will be held until the end of your daughter’s final term in the school.
Unfortunately this cannot be refunded if the place is not taken up for any reason.
