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.

School Trips

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.
