Certain additional charges stem from the wide variety of activities and facilities available at Cranleigh. In principle, any service or item acquired by a pupil for personal use is charged to parents. These include purchases from the School Shop, other items of clothing and equipment, materials individually requested or those used in products retained by pupils, medical and dental charges, optional trips/tours/holidays of a sporting, musical, cultural or recreational nature as well as miscellaneous items such as taxis, telephone charges and items of stationery.


The School is aware of its obligations under the Equality Act 2010 in relation to charging for reasonable adjustments. The School will consult carefully with parents about any adjustments that are required for the pupil to determine the level of support that can reasonably be made. The School reserves the right to charge any additional provision outside of this as an extra.

For all new pupils whose parents have a UK bank account, payment of School fees is by termly direct debit, in advance. Please note that a separate direct debit mandate must be completed. For all fees not settled by direct debit (save those paid under the Advanced Fees Scheme) all fees and charges must be paid before the first day of term by bank transfer. Please note that the School cannot accept payment of fees in cash due to insurance constraints. Overdue accounts are subject to interest being charged as per the parental contract. If the fees for any pupil remain unpaid at the end of the term in which they are due the School reserves the right not to permit the pupil to return to the School. The Bursar may also terminate schooling during any particular term if there is a consistent record of late payment. This will not terminate the liability of the parent or guardian for payment of outstanding or future fees.


The fees and charges shown are those presently in force. The Governing Body reserves the right to review them at their discretion at any time whether before or after a pupil’s admission. As much written notice as possible of alteration will be given.

Keen and capable musicians are warmly welcomed at all stages. Please contact music@cranleigh.org if you would like to make a preliminary visit or discuss the possibilities available for a potential music scholarship candidate.
