Included in Your Fees
School fees include textbooks and all non-residential, curriculum-based trips throughout the term. Residential trips are an additional cost and overseas school trips are an optional extra. Parents are advised well in advance of such trips together with the payment schedule.
Not included in Your Fees
For parents and fee-payers of the incoming cohort of Year 11 students and above in our schools, we will pass on the public exam fees when they reach the summer term of 2024, alongside the summer term fees. This will be a transparent additional charge for the actual cost of the number and type of subjects being sat at GCSE, IGCSE, BTEC, AS and A-levels, tailored for each student. Currently the typical range is between £400 to £600 for GCSE students and £350 to £500 for A-level students. We will be in contact during the spring term before the student’s exams with a statement of exams entered and their associated costs.
Recipients of a means-tested bursary will not be required to pay exam fees if they receive an award of 50% or higher, with a pro-rata reduction applied in-line with their assessed award for those on lower award levels.
A family who enrol their 3rd or any subsequent daughter into any GDST school will be eligible for a 20% fee reduction for the 3rd and all subsequent daughters who attend the school.
To qualify, a family must have three or more girls attending a GDST school at the same time. Once awarded, the discount will remain with the pupil until she leaves the school. The discount will not be removed from the qualifying pupil should a sibling leave the school and in doing so reduce the total number of girls from the same family to below three.
Once awarded to a pupil, the discount cannot be transferred to another sibling. If the pupil with the discount leaves the school then the discount ceases. Consequently the sibling discount will normally be awarded to the youngest member of the family in the school.
Lunch at Oxford High School
Lunch is mandatory for all pupils until they complete the end of Year 11. Once in the Sixth Form, students have the freedom to eat in or out of school or bring in their own food. Sixth Form students may purchase lunch from the Dining Hall and parents will be billed in arrears via ParentPay, or they can purchase lunch from Café 6 in the Ada Benson Building where payment is taken by card.
How does the direct debit scheme work?
For payment by termly direct debit, the termly fee due will be debited to your bank account on or within the first 7 days of each term. For payment by monthly direct debit, one-fourth of the termly bill will be debited on the 5th day of each month of the term (for example, the Autumn Term fee would be paid over four months from September to December). If the 5th falls on a bank holiday or weekend the payment is collected on the next working day. Monthly payments commence at the beginning of the academic year in September and the last payment of the academic year is due in August.
You may also pay school fees annually in advance by cheque and should contact the Fees Department for information on this method of payment along with information on our pre-payment scheme which allows you to pay a lump sum to cover all or part of the estimated future fees for a specific period.
Whom do I contact to discuss/query school fees?

Mr Lewis Warren is the contact for queries regarding fees at Oxford High School.
A unique pupil reference number is allocated to your daughter when she starts at a GDST school; this reference will stay with her throughout her time at the school and should be quoted on all manual payments and correspondence. It would also be also useful if you could quote this reference when calling the Fees Department with any query.
The unique pupil reference number will start with the capital letter “N”.
