Boarding Fees

Termly boarding fees for the 2023/24 academic year are £17,800 (£53,400 per annum).  

(For Day fees please refer to Day student fees section.) 

Fees for boarding students are payable on a twice-yearly basis in advance. Initial invoices for fees are issued three months prior to the commencement of the course and subsequent invoices are issued each December and June. 

The College aims to include all the key elements of a Concord education in our fees. Our fees include some elements that would be added as extra items at some schools.

The College recommends that parents arrange the following insurances for their children:

  • Personal property insurance (own arrangements necessary) 
  • Private health insurance (strongly recommended and available via the College at an extra charge). 

Once the offer of a place has been made, a deposit must be sent to the College to reserve this place. Deposits vary depending on the status of the child and details can be obtained from the Admissions Secretary.  Deposits will be retained by the College and credited without interest to the final account when the student leaves Concord College. The deposit is normally non-refundable if the student is withdrawn having held a place that could have been offered to another student. 

Anti-money laundering 


The College maintains an anti-money laundering (AML) policy and as part of our normal procedures we may check the names of parents and/or fee payers (including those holding offers and all those in the current offer process).
