Fees and Registration

Become part of the St Andrew’s Prep family

The first part of the St Andrew’s Prep admissions process is to complete and return a registration form with a registration fee of £150. Receipt of a registration form reserves a place for your child subject to availability.  For convenience, registration can be completed online below and the fee paid electronically or the form can be printed off and sent back.  Registering a child does not constitute any parental commitment to taking up a place.  

Please complete our online registration form

One year before entry, parents will be asked to pay a deposit which ranges from £500 (for a nursery place) to £10,500 (for a boarding place for children whose parents are not resident in the UK). Receipt of a deposit secures the place for your child. Deposits are held until a child leaves the school and are credited to the final bill.
