High March School




Once a parent has decided to apply for a place at High March School, the registration form should be completed and returned to the School, together with the £100 non-returnable registration fee.

Payment will be acknowledged and the place (or waiting list place) will be provisionally confirmed.

Please note that if a girl attends a ‘Taster Day’, the registration form must be completed and returned to the School Office, together with the Registration fee, prior to the visit.

Approximately twelve months before joining High March, a deposit of £750 will be requested to guarantee the place; this will be refunded on the leaver’s final account. Please note that if a deposit is paid and a place subsequently not taken up, the deposit will not be refunded.

Fees include tuition, loan of text books, stationery, art handiwork materials and lunches. A charge will be made for any textbooks or school property lost or damaged.

Our aim is to make fees as inclusive as possible  and so, with effect from September 1, 2023, fees will include the extended day (8am to 5.30pm), pupil accident insurance, all snacks, Forest School and non-residential visits.


Payment of Fees

Fees are due on or before the first day of term.

Fees are subject to termly review and may be increased by the School upon giving at least one term’s notice to parents. In the normal way fees are increased only once per academic year, with effect from September each year.

Parents are reminded that a full term’s notice in writing, to commence no later than the first day of the relevant term, must be given to the Headmistress for the withdrawal of a child, otherwise fees will be charged in lieu of the required notice.

Termly fees

(From September 1, 2023)

Nursery, 5 mornings            £2,275
Reception £4,615

Nursery children are also able to stay for any number of afternoons; the arrangement is very flexible in that parents can opt for one, two or even five afternoons. Parents are encouraged to build up afternoons as the year progresses to ensure that their child is prepared for full time school in Reception. It is strongly recommended that children are attending a mimimum of two afternoons by the summer term. Details of the cost of a Nursery afternoon, together with other fees and charges, are contained in the Fees and Charges Information Sheet.
