How to pay

Payment of Fees

Fees can be paid monthly via direct debit or in termly instalments. This covers the curriculum, school books, stationery and other materials, external careers consultancy, choral music, games and public examination fees but not optional extra subjects or school lunch.

Whenever possible, we will offer a term’s notice of the intention to increase the fees for tuition, lunch or extra subjects. However, if circumstances arise in which costs (e.g. substantial increases in teachers’ salaries) have to be recouped immediately, the Council of the Trust may be forced to increase fees at less than a term’s notice.

Registration Fee

A non-refundable fee of £125 (£200 for overseas applications) is charged to process each student’s application.

For families applying for a Bursary place, the Registration Fee may be waived upon receipt of payment of Income Support or Housing Benefit.

Acceptance Deposit

When you accept a place at Putney, we ask for an acceptance deposit of £1,500 in order to accept and secure the place. This deposit is refunded after a pupil has left (after deducting any outstanding amounts due to the school or the Trust). This fee is not returned if a pupil is withdrawn after the place has been accepted.


Lunch is charged separately and currently costs

  • £212 per term (Reception and Years 1 and 2)
  • £251 per term (Years 3 – 11)

Lunch is compulsory for all pupils, from Reception to Year 11. This is charged separately on the fees account. Sixth Form students can purchase their lunch in the Sixth Form Diner.

Tuition is available in voice (Senior School only), piano, harp, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone, recorder, horn, trumpet, trombone, tuba, violin, viola, cello, double bass and drum kit.
The fees for instrumental and vocal tuition are set by our specialist visiting teachers. Accounts for tuition will be sent direct by the teachers concerned.

Please note that 30 lessons will be given each year, though the number per term may vary – 12, 10, 8 is a common pattern.

Bursaries and Scholarships are here to help

We believe that no one should be excluded from a Putney education. Our Senior School admissions process is means blind and Senior School students are offered places based on their potential.

Putney is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), in which almost one in five pupils receives a bursary or scholarship to help towards her fees. Just ask for more information on how the school can help.
