We work hard to make our school fees competitive and these are reviewed annually by the Head and Governing Body.

Our fees incorporate all meals, books and equipment and additional items such as school trips, visits and workshops are added to the end of term fee invoice. We provide parents with an annual breakdown of the likely additional items to assist with budgeting.

Parents are able to pay fees in a number of ways: for further information, please contact the Director of Finance at bursar@longacreschool.co.uk or telephone 01483 893225.
