We review our fees yearly and can provide means-tested fee assistance to families. In the Junior School, our fees include lunch.

Our fees are payable in full on or before the first day of term by direct debit. A full term’s notice is needed for the withdrawal of a pupil from Habs.

Device loan

All Year 7 to 12 will be issued with a school device. Device rental is £125 a term.

Registration fee and deposit

When you confirm your acceptance of a place for your child, there is an acceptance fee (a deposit) of 50% of a term’s fees. This will be returned to you when your child completes their time at Habs Girls.

Paying monthly

Many parents choose to spread the cost of their school fees by paying monthly, via a School Fee Plan.

This independent service offers a convenient way to manage your child’s fees through regular direct debit payments. Any extras can then be added on a termly basis, such as music tuition and trips.

School fee plans

Fees In Advance (FIA) scheme

Our Fees In Advance scheme allows you or any family members to make lump-sum payments towards all or part of your child’s fees, including extras. Many parents, grandparents and even godparents like to contribute as part of the scheme.

The amount deposited with Habs Girls is then used to pay your child’s fees as they fall due each term, until the pre-payment is exhausted.

In return for holding the lump sum, the school will apply a discount to the advance payment of 3.50%, which approximates to a return on investment of 4.16% per year for higher-rate taxpayers. The scheme does not fix your future school fees. Yet the rate of return will be guaranteed at the time the money is received by Habs Girls – and for however long it is held.

You can find more details in the T&Cs document below, along with some worked examples. The FIA calculator provides a quotation based on your chosen termly amount.
