Payable to secure your child’s place in the School. Refundable upon your child leaving the school, less any charges:
Tick Tock, Nursery & Kindergarten: £200.00
Reception to Year 8: £400.00
Pupils moving from Kindergarten to Reception will be billed the additional deposit of £200.
The basic day fee covers tuition, all teaching facilities, text books, exercise books, meals, sport, match travel and the majority of activities. Individual tuition for learning a musical instrument, speech and drama, sports coaching or for learning support is not covered by the basic day fee.
This covers everything included in the Basic Day Fee plus any boarding booked and charged for in advance.
These fees are charged termly in advance with the amount varying according to the pupil’s year group and whether they are day or boarding pupils.

From September 2017, the Full Boarding Fee includes up to £50 worth of weekend activities per term. Anything which your child participates in over £50 per term will be added to your bill. For the majority of boarders, the £50 included per term is sufficient to cover all such activities.
From September 2017, boarding nights booked in advance will be charged for based on actual nights booked.
The cost per night to stay at The Tree House is £30. We are aware that your child may wish to try just a few nights at first. To this end we ask you to commit for a term but if, for any reason, this does not work out you will only be charged for the nights on which your child boards. This introductory price and flexibility are designed to make the early years of boarding at Moor Park as positive an experience for you and your child as possible. You are welcome to book extra nights and these too will be charged at £30.
The following prices apply to nights booked in advance before the start of the relevant term:-
1 – 3 nights per week £40 per night
4 – 5 nights £38 per night
Friday remains the most popular night and priority will be given to those children who are booked in for 2 or more nights per week.
Children booking in for a Friday night will not be charged for Exeats, half terms or end of terms.
Additional ad hoc nights paid for in arrears £43 per night
Changing boarding arrangements and missed nights
