Admissions Procedure

For all prospective parents:

Our website will give you a useful first impression of our school and explain a little about our history and our ethos and what we offer.

A first step in the applications procedure is for you to visit the school during the normal school day so that you can see us in action. This can be arranged either by phoning (01279 871182) or emailing the school office (office@tcstadmin.co.uk). Because our senior leaders are also teachers, we are not able to offer you an interview at this stage.

The termly fees for a new starter at the school are as follows:

Years 3 / 4 –        £2595

Year 5 / 6 –          £2706

Year 7 –                £2949

Year 8 –                £3120

Year 9 –                £3297

Year 10 –              £3474

Fees are inclusive of tuition, textbooks, teaching materials, swimming lessons, games and all activities except those listed below.
Fees do not include: after-school and homework clubs; any additional one to one tuition sessions; trips; GCSE exam fees; modern languages magazines; instrumental music and sport lessons given by visiting teachers.

There are generous fee reductions for children in the same family. Fees are determined by the point of entry and so the sooner you join the school, the lower your fee remains.

More information about Admissions and Fees

As an independent school, fees are our main source of income.  We keep these as low as we can without compromising the standards of teaching and administration in the school.  Our aim is to make our fee structure such that we can encourage whole families to attend.  Reductions to our normal tariff can be agreed at the discretion of the trustees on application and are subject to regular review.

Families joining the school commit to helping with basic maintenance tasks and/or cleaning three times a year.  This enables us to keep our buildings decorated and maintained without adding to our fees.  But more than this, these times of working and sharing time together is a special way of caring for our school and of getting to know each other.

The new fee structure is published before the end of the summer term.

Where any changes are made to school fees policy, parents will be informed.
