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 school, eat in Summertown or bring in their own food to eat in their Common room. Sixth Form students may choose to continue school lunches when they start in Year 12 by either paying in cash on a daily basis or be invoiced by the GDST once a written request from the parents has been received by the school before the end of the academic year. The lunch charge is added to the invoice sent directly by the GDST Office.

School fees include text books and all curriculum based trips throughout the term. Residential trips for the various year groups 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.

Sibling Discount

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 girls. Details of the award of the sibling discount. To qualify a family must have three or more girls attending a GDST school at the same time before a discount can be awarded to the 3rd or any subsequent sibling. 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.

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 fee would be paid over four months from September – 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.
