As a charitable trust, we strive to keep our charges as low as possible. The school fees and lunch fees are set out below. Additional charges are only incurred for external examination fees, optional peripatetic music lessons or home-school transport by school minibus.
Ffynone House School represents excellent value for money. The school is a charitable trust and does not have shareholders, so all benefits are for students. As such, fees are significantly lower than other independent schools in Wales and there are no hidden extras. Parents find our high standard of teaching, personal support, and individual attention enable pupils to achieve their best without the high cost of private tuition fees.
Fees are payable on or before the first day of the term. A monthly payment plan by standing order is available on request.
Standard fees include all general stationery, textbooks, and craft materials. Occasionally, parents may be required to pay for ad-hoc expendable items such as course-specific workbooks and materials, which are to pass on to the possession of children.
Additional fees apply to external examination costs (such as LAMDA, GCSE, and A-Level), peripatetic tutoring (e.g., specialist musical instruments), school lunches, and optional extra subjects.
A wide range of educational, team-building, social, and charitable activities is available, involving optional contributions.
