From September 2020

Fees and associated charges payable from September 2020 are shown below. Parents are asked to note that the fees are calculated as an annual sum collected in three equal instalments at the beginning of each term in accordance with our terms and conditions. The fees payable from September 2020 are as follows:

  • Day pupils £19,650 (£6,550 per term)
  • Boarding pupils £32,550 (£10,850 per term)
  • International boarding pupils £37,575 (£12,525 per term) * see below

A 10% discount on boarding fees will apply for second and subsequent pupils from the same family attending Dauntsey’s together. Fees are subject to review each year.



A £1,000 deposit is payable on acceptance of a vacancy at Dauntsey's. This deposit will be held by Dauntsey's and deducted from the extras' account at the end of the pupil's final term. Fees may be paid direct by bank transfer or on cheques or bank drafts drawn on a UK bank. We regret we are unable to accept payment in cash.

For International Pupils a further deposit of £10,000 is payable. The additional deposit will be retained in the general funds of the School and will normally be credited without interest against the final payment of fees or other sums due to the School on leaving.

Payment of Fees

The School's Terms and Conditions require fees to be paid in advance by the first day of each term. Fees not paid in full by the first day of term, or where payment is delayed, will normally attract a surcharge of 1.5% per month or part thereof.
